Soak Up the Sun by Sheryl Crow
Just an FYI:  The picking is easier if your fingers are in the chord position.  It 
easier transition between chords. You can also play the intro for the verses to change things 
a bit.

B----------9-----7--7---5-—5--------|
G--------9---9---8-—8---6--6--------|

Verse 1:
E             B    A
My Friend the Communist
E              B      A
Holds meetings in his RV
E         B        A
I can’t afford his gas
E                 B        A
So I’m stuck here watching TV
E            B   A
I don’t have digital
E            B      A
I don’t have diddly squat
E              B        A
Its not having what you want
E           B           A
Its wanting what you’ve got

Chorus:
E                     B
I’m gonna soak up the sun
                    A
I’m gonna tell everyone
           B
To lighten up (I’m gonna tell ‘em that)
E                  B
I’ve got no one to blame
                      A
For every time I feel lame
            B
I’m looking up
I’m gonna soak up the sun (Repeat intro on “sun” on this line, do 2x)
I’m gonna soak up the sun

Verse 2:
E          B      A
I’ve got a crummy job
E            B     A
It don’t pay near enough
E          B         A
To buy the things it takes
E         B            A
To win me some of your love

Change:
E
Every time I turn around
    B                  A
I’m looking up, you’re looking down
E
Maybe something’s wrong with you
     B                 A
That makes you act the way you do
Chorus repeat

Verse 3:
E             B      A
Don’t have no master suite
E             B       A
I’m still the king of me
E          B     A
You have a fancy ride, but baby
E               B       A
I’m the one who has the key
Change:
E
Every time I turn around
    B                  A
I’m looking up, you’re looking down
E
Maybe something’s wrong with you
     B                 A
That makes you act the way you do
E          B     A
Maybe I am crazy too

Chorus repeat
E                    B
Im gonna soak up the sun
          A
Got my 45 on
              B
So I can rock on
