[Intro]
G G Dm G C F G C

[Verse 1]
C                           F        C
The blackbird she flies wherever she wants to
Dm                           Cm  C
The mockingbird singing, oh, any old song
                                     F          E
And the swallow she's nesting in the rafters of my house
D         Dm             G             C
Summer is coming and the geese are all gone
           D           G
You got to fly and let fly

[Verse 2]
        C                          F          C
Ah, the mower's broke down and the yard's run away with me
     Dm                        C
I've taken to sitting and just watching it grow
                                F
And the rabbits are eating like kings in the driveway
         Dm                  G           G
And I've just about found me no place to go
              D            G
You've got to live and let live

[Chorus]
G                          Dm           G
Come sit by my side in the shade of all greens
   C               F                Gm      G C
It smells like the honeysuckle have gone to extremes
    G                       Dm             G
And I've found a reason and you've made it rhyme
    C         F      G               C
And we can go crazy, tomorrow's just fine

[Verse 3]
C
I'm going to sit on the front porch
          F              C
Until the lightning bugs show up
       Dm                           C
And it really gets dark and there's dogs in the trash
                                     F           E
It's the first and the last time all rolled into this time
Dm                      G           C
You make me feel like I just took a bath
           D             G
You got to laugh and let laugh

[Chorus]
G                          Dm           G
Come sit by my side in the shade of all greens
   C               F                Gm      G C
It smells like the honeysuckle have gone to extremes
    G                       Dm             G
And I've found a reason and you've made it rhyme
    C         F        G       C
And we can go laughin' any old time

[Bridge]
           D            G
You got to love and let love
    C         F              C
And we can go lovin' any ol' time
           D           G
You got to fly and let fly

[Outro]
