Macarthur Park:Richard Harris.
#2 in 1968.

Dm                               Dm/C
Spring was never waiting for us, girl,
it ran one step a..head as we followed
       Gm   Bb/F
in the dance.
F   Dm                              Dm/C
Be..tween the parted pages and were pressed,
in love's hot, fevered i..ron, like a strip-ed 
        Gm    Bb/F  Ab Bb
pair of pants.

MacArthur Park is melting in the dark,
CM7                        Gm7/C
all the sweet, green icing flowing down..
F                                Fm7
Someone left the cake out in the rain..
I don't think that I can take it,
cause it took so long to bake it,
         C/E                     Fm7
and I'll never have that recipe again,
Oh, no!

Dm                         Dm/C                   
I recall the yellow cotton dress, foaming like
  Eb/Bb                           Gm   Bb/F
a wave on the ground, around your knees.
F   Dm                                Dm/C
The birds, like tender babies in your hands,
                        Eb/Bb            Gm
and the old men playing checkers, by the trees.


F                              Fm7
There will be another song for me,
           BbM7 Bb6
for I will sing it.
There will be another dream for me,
             Fsus9/A  F
someone will bring    it.
Fm7    BbM7
I will drink the wine while it is warm,
Em7-5                      Am7
and never let you catch me looking at

the sun.
D7  Gm7                       Gm7/C  C7-9
And after all the loves of my life,
Fm7           F           BbM7
after all the loves of my life,
                    EbM7  Gm7/C
you'll still be the one.

  C7           F            Fm7
I will take my life into my hands and
       BbM7  Bb6
I will use   it.
I will win the worship in their eyes and 
       Fsus9/A  F
I will lose     it.
I will have the things that I desire,
Em7-5                    Am7                   D7sus4 D7 C
and my passion flow like rivers through the sky.
D7  Gm7                       Gm7/C
And after all the loves of my life,
C7-9  Fm7                       BbM7
Oh,   after all the loves of my life,
                    EbM7 Csus4         Dm
I'll be thinking of you  and wondering why.
