Intro:
Riff X, G, B7, C, Riff X, G, B7, C, Riff X


G         B7    C        Riff X
(Swing on down, swing on down to me.
 Swing on down, swing on down to me.)


G                       B7
In the morning when the sun still shines,
C                                D7
and the last star lingers in the pale blue sky, that's when
G                   B7                 C                       D7
I know you're around, said that's when I know you're around.



G                           B7
and in the evenin' when the light comes through the trees
    C                               D7
the birds sing a song as if they're singin' to me. That's when
G                   B7                 C                       D7
I know you're around, said that's when I know you're around


                 G                  B7    C             Riff X
I'm dreamin' if you could, swing on down, swing on down to me
                 G                 B7      C                Riff X
I wanna know if you would swing on down, swing on down to me
            G                                    B7
every time I see somethin' like that... (swing on down)
              C              Riff X
I want you to ... (swing on down to me)
             G                      B7           C
baby, won't you just ... (swing on down to me) Swing on down to me.
  Riff X
(swing on down to me)


G             B7              C                   D7
Every time the rain comes out, but the sun still wants to shout,
            G                   B7                   C                    D7 
that's when I know you're around, I said that's when I know you're around
   G                             B7
Yuh know all the colors, they just speak to me
C                        D7                       G                  B7
tell me stories of how it used to be when you were still around
                 C           D7                     
I wish you were still around ‘cause I want you to



G                         B7                          C            Riff X
swing on down, (swing on down) swing on down to me (swing on down to me)
              G                             B7 
from the clouds won't you just, (swing on down) 
          C                    Riff X
swing on down to me (swing on down to me)
         G                     B7     C           Riff X          
baby won't you just (swing on down) swing on down to me
             G                    B7  C                                      
I wanna see you today (swing on down, swing on down to me)
             Riff X             G       B7
I want you to swing on down to me
            C             D7
it's gonna feel so good 


G  B7  C  D7  G  B7  C  D7


                      G
And all the colors they tell me things,
    B7
the birds in the trees,
C                       D7       G
and the stars in the sky...



Listen to the Recording to get the feel of it, it’s a great song.

@irishdrive

That's a fair point. Playing it solo, I like the sound of full barre chords.

Also, I play all DF stuff on a 12-string - in the D7 barre chord format, the 'D' note that is dropped in the D7 fingering on a 6-string is covered via one of the paired strings. If you've never played a 12-string, I highly recommend you pick one up; you'll never want to put it down.
