Verse Chords:

G      D          Am7                         G
So I'm lying here just staring at the ceiling tiles,
        D               Bm7               Am7
And I'm thinking about, oh what to think about.
G    D               Am7                 G
Just listening and relistening to Smiley Smile
        D                    Bm7             Am7

Am7        D                         G        Fmaj7
Wondering where all the hell all the love has gone
Am7        D                   Fmaj7          Em
Playing my guitar and building castles in the sun, 
Am7 D
And singing Fun Fun Fun
