                        "Pleasant Valley Sunday"
                      (Gerry Goffin - Carole King)


	two electric guitars [3X]; acoustic guitar enters 2nd time:

	     A             G/A  [bass tacet during intro]
	     v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v

Verse 1:

	The local rock group down the street
	                              G/A [w/intro riff]
	Is trying hard to learn their song
	They serenade the weekend squire
	                             G/A [w/intro riff]
	Who just came out to mow his lawn

Chorus 1:

	 C      FaddG            C      FaddG
	Another Pleasant Valley Sunday (Sunday)
	  C      FaddG          C        D
	Charcoal burning everywhere
	 E7      A               D   A   E7
	Rows of houses that are all the same
	    Bm F#m   D   A   E7
	And no-one seems to care

Verse 2:

	See Mrs. Gray, she's proud today
	Because her roses are in bloom
	And Mr. Green, he's so serene
	He's got a TV in every room

Chorus 2:

	Another Pleasant Valley Sunday (Sunday)
	Here in status symbol land
	Mothers complain about how hard life is
	And the kids just don't understand


	Creature comfort goals
	They only numb my soul
	And make it hard for me to see
	My thoughts all seem to stray
	To places far away
	I need a change of scenery

[repeat intro riff w/bass, 2X]

[repeat verse w/wordless vocal]

Chorus 3:

	 C      FaddG            C      FaddG
	Another Pleasant Valley Sunday (Sunday)
	 C      FaddG          C
	Charcoal burning everywhere
	 F       Bb              F     Bb
	Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
	 F       Bb            F       (A)
	Here in status symbol land

[repeat intro riff w/bass, 2X]

Coda [repeat 7X (until swamped in echo)]:

	  A [w/intro riff]
	Another Pleasant Valley Sunday (another Pleasant Valley Sunday)

Throughout the 1990's Andrew Rogers transcribed many tabs for popular songs of the '50s,'60s and '70s. OLGA (The On-line Guitar Archive) was the first tab archive on the net, but had to fend off song publishers for the right to exist. The site was finally taken down in 2012, but you'll find cloned copies of the archive, and amongst them Andrews tabs, posted on many current tab sites.

Sadly in 2000, Andrew Rogers died from complications from a bone marrow transplant as treatment for his leukemia.
