From the first Beach Boys album, "Surfin' Safari".  Pretty easy song, but the vocal 
melody is nice.   The song is in F, with the chord progression I, vi, IV, V.  So F 
Major, Am, F, G, like so:


     F
This time each year in our hometown

     Am
The county fair comes our way

      F                                            G
Where the folks gather round to be happy and spend their day

And that chord progression is used the entire song.  At the very end,"Yeah the big 
strong guy knocked the bell in the sky", it just bounces back between G Major and E minor 
every two measures.

The guitar lick played occasionally (intro of the song and before verses come in) is the 
4th, 3rd,and 2nd of the scale, so:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-3-3-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------7-7-----5-5--------------------------------------------------------|


For bassists (or guitarists too, I guess) that want to walk the bassline and play as 
Brian does in the song:

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------5-9-5---5-9-5------2-5-2---2-5-2-----4-7-4---4-7-4----|
A|---2-5-2---2-5-2---7-------7----------3-------3---------5-------5----------|
E|-3-------3-----------------------------------------------------------------|

Which is just the standard 1st, 3rd, and 5th of each chord.  Doubling each to play it as 
8th notes would sound great here.



And that's it!  Very simple song, but a fun one nonetheless.
