B                F#            B                   F# 
Some of them were superstitious sitting with their backs facing the orchard.

B  F#  B  F#

B                 F#               B                   F#    
All of them with mittens on, their hands and feet were waiting there for winter.

C#m                                                   B
Thousands on the freeze, well I could never join them there.

Em                                                         G#m
And then we dare not bother, but couldn't help but holler "Yeah!"

F#  C#  Em

C#                           Em                       G#m    F#
There's no use in hiding the joy from the bright blue sun.

C#                       Em                 B
I could wait for winter, better if it never comes.

B  F#

B                 F#            B               F#
Some of them were superstitious watching them parade around the town square.

B  F#  B  F#

B                 F#           B                F#   
Some of them were praising monocled men simply 'cause they don't know better.

B  F#  B  F#

C#m                                               B
Someone to protect them, someone to keep track of them.

Em                                               G#m    F#
No, I don't believe them, I would rather holler "Yeah!"

C#                           Em                       G#m    F#
There's no use in hiding the joy from the bright blue sun.

C#                          Em                        (capo)D

D  A  Em  A

D  A  Em  A

D          Bm                 A
Can you operate machines like that?

D              Bm                A
Miles a day on tough terrain and grass.

D               Bm           A
I'm not sure if we will meet again.

  D                   Bm                   A
I guess it depends on which company you're in.

   (four bars on each chord)

D A

    D           Bm           A
And when you're gone, you're gone.

So soon, so soon, so long.

    Em                 A                   Em          A
But life, it works for someone. And you're someone.

   D        Bm       A
So soon, so soon, so long.

    D           Bm           A
And when you're gone, you're gone.

    Em                 A                   Em          A
And life, it works for someone. And you're someone.

       Em          A
You're someone.

       Em          A
You're someone.       La la la-ah lah.

   (four bars on each chord)

D  Bm  E  D

Note: I didn't realize that when you submit it under "chords" it
automatically has those little chord pop ups. It's nice.

Also, it may be needless to say, but the chords during the second
part of the song are named with the capo on first fret. You know
how it goes.
