Summertime Verse 1: Summertime And the living is easy Fish are jumpin' And the cotton is high Your daddy's rich And your mama's good lookin' So hush little baby now don't you cry Verse 2: One of these mornin's You're gonna rise up singin' You're gonna spread your wings And take to the sky But til that mornin' Ain't nothin' can harm you With your daddy & your mammy standin' by My arrangement: Intro: prog-1 Verse-1: prog-1 prog-2 prog-1b prog-3 Verse-2: (same as Verse-1, except use chords from 2nd-half of prog-3 instead of chords from prog-1) Solo: Verse-1: Ending: Repeat last line with prog-3 again, then repeat last line with prog-3b, very slowly. (It's nice to add a descending scale between the F9+6 & E7+5 chords. Try an Fmaj scale from middle-F, and ending on the low-E.)
