"Makin' Sunshine" (McDonald, McDonald, Syperek, Dalton)

Main riff (electric 6-string & acoustic 12-string) over B harmonium drone. 


[VERSE 1]
                       B5
Tomorrow's always far away,
B5
When you are stuck in yesterday. 
B5
And this old town keeps you locked up and lost inside,
B5
It draws the lines upon your face.
B5                           E5               F#m  G#m
It makes you old before your day, though it's rainin'
      F#   E5      F#m    G#m      F# B5  
Don't stay in, no escapin', we are destined. 

[VERSE 2]

B5                           B5
My heart is not the type to sway,
                        B5
It's good for any other day. 
B5
So if you say that you will stay, and you'll be mine,
B5             
Oh, I'lll make everything OK. 
B5                         E5               F#m  G#m
I'll push the other world away, though it's rainin'
      F#   E5       F#m  G#m       F#  B5   
Don't stay in, no escapin', we are destined. 

[CHORUS]
             E5  B5           E5 B5             
I'm right on time, I'm makin' sunshine,
           E5   B5
I'm makin' sunshine.
             E5  B5           E5 B5
I'm right on time, I'm makin' sunshine,
           E5 B5
I'm makin' sunshine. 

[BRIDGE]

B5 F#5 G5 E5 X2 B Bsus4 X4 

[VERSE 3]
                       B5
There was a time I was afraid.
B5
and that my strength was feeling fey. 
B5
But now's the time to stand aware,
B5
And take what's mine,
B5
The lesson's done, my dues are paid.

[CHORUS]
             E5  B5           E5  B5
I'm right on time, I'm makin' sunshine
           E5 B5
I'm makin' sunshine
             E5  B5           E5  B5
I'm right on time, I'm makin' sunshine
           E5  B5
I'm makin' sunshine
             E5  B5              E5  B5           E5 B5
I'm right on time, (I'm right on time) I'm makin' sunshine
           E5  B5
I'm makin' sunshine...

Repeat last line, end cold on B-drone.
