TITLE: The Summertime Blues
Lyrics and Chords

Well I'm a-gonna raise a fuss, I'm a-gonna raise a holler
'Bout workin' all summer just to try to earn a dollar

/ D - - - - G A D / /

Well, I went to the bossman to take off for a date
But the boss said "No dice, son, you gotta work late"

/ G - - - / D - - - /

Sometimes I wonder what I'm a-gonna do
'Cause there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

/ G - - - / D - - - - G A D /

Well, my mom and poppa told me, son, you gotta earn some money
If you want to use the car to go a-ridin' next Sunday

Well, I wouldn't go to work, I told the boss I was sick
He said, "You can't use the car 'cause you didn't work a lick"


Gonna take two weeks, gonna have a fine vacation
Gonna take my problem to the United Nations

Well, I went to my congressman, he said, quote:
"I'd try to help you, son, but you're too young to vote"
