[Intro]

      G      D7       G     D7         E
      When I take you out tonight with me,
      E     B7         E        B7    C#
      Honey here's the way it's gonna be.
      C#     Ab7   C#     Ab7     Bb   Cm7   F7
      You'll set behind a team of snow white horses,
      G      D7       G          D7   G
      In the slickest gig you'll ever see.



[Verse 1]

G          
Chicks and ducks and geese better scurry
G
When I take ya out in the surrey
G
When I take ya out in the surrey
         A         D
With the fringe on top



[Verse 2]

G
Watch that fringe and see how it flutters
G
When I drive them high steppin' strutters
G
Nosey pokes'll peek thru their shutters
          A        D  
And their eyes 'll pop


[Chorus]

          C          A           C            A
      The wheels are yellow, the upholstery's brown
          G                   F
      The dashboard's genuine leather
           C#m       A#m         C#m            A#m
      With isinglass curtains y' can roll right down
         G#m                          D#m  G#m
      In case there's a change in the wea--ther


[Verse 3]

G
Two bright sidelights winkin' and blinkin'
G
Ain't no finer rig I'm a thinkin'
G
You can keep your rig if you're thinkin'
         A       D    
That I'd care t' swap
         C
For that shiny little surrey
         Am            G    
With the fringe on the top


[Aside]

      Am                           B       Am
      Would you say the fringe was made of silk?
                                      G
      Wouldn't have no other kind but silk.
      Am                          D7         E7
      Has it really got a team of snow white horses?
      Am                                     G 
      One's like snow, the other's more like milk.
    

[Verse 4]

G
All the world 'll fly in a flurry
G
When I take you out in the surrey
G
When I take you out in the surrey
         D7        D 
With the fringe on top


[Verse 5]

G
When we hit that road hell for leather
G
Cats and dogs 'll dance in the heather
G
Birds and frogs 'll sing altogether
        A          D
And the toads will hop


[Chorus]

          C        A             C      A
      The wind 'll whistle as we rattle along,
          G                   F
      The cows 'll moo in the clover.
          C#m        A#m          C#m       A#m
      The river will ripple out a whispered song,
          G#m                 D#m  G#m
      And whisper it over and o----ver.


[Verse 6] (Sotto Voce)

G
Don't you wisht it'd go on forever?
G
Don't you wisht it'd go on forever?
G
Don't you wisht it'd go on forever,
         A       D 
And it'd ne--ver stop?
        C
In that shiny little surrey
         D7     D      G
With the fringe on the top



[Verse 7] (Sotto Voce & Adagio)

G
I can see the stars gettin' blurry
G
When we ride back home in the surrey
G
Riding slowly home in the surrey
         A         D   
With the fringe on top


[Verse 8] (Sotto Voce & Adagio)

G
I can feel the day gettin' older
G
Feel a sleepy head near my shoulder
G
Noddin', droopin' close to my shoulder
        D7        D   
'Til it falls ker-plop


[Chorus] (Sotto Voce & Adagio)

          C      A               C        A
      The sun is swimmin' on the rim of a hill
          G                F
      The moon is takin' a header
          C#m         A#m              C#m      A#m
      And just as I'm thinkin' all the earth is still
        G#m                     D#m  G#m
      A lark 'll wake up in the mea--der


[Verse 9]  (Sotto Voce & Adagio)

G
Hush you bird my baby's a sleepin'
G
Maybe got a dream worth a keepin'
G
Whoa you team, and just keep a creepin'
     A    D    D7 
At a slow clip-clop


[Outro]
          C
Don't you hurry with the surrey
         D7     D      G
With the fringe on the top
