                             "Six O'Clock"
                            (John Sebastian)

Intro:

	clavinet arr. for guitar [4X; vocal and flutes (mellotron?) enter

	         G                     Fsus2
	There's something special 'bout six o'clock
	         G                         Fsus2
	In the morning when it's still too early to knock

	         E                 Am/E
	And the dusky light shines down on the block
	        E7                      Am/E
	And reflects up and down on the hands of the clock

	Fsus2 [as above, 4X; alarm clock enters 3rd time]
	Six o'clock, six o'clock

Verse 1:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/l/lovin_spoonful/six_o_clock_crd_ver_2.html ]
	G           G#dim                 Am
	A few hours ago she was standing here
	                   C                          D
	Just watching the stars in our eyes and the lights as the tights
	           G
	     disappeared
	             Em                      E
	And I could feel I could say what I want
	              Am                       A
	That I could nudge her and call her my   confidante
	     G            D                  C         G
	But now I'm all alone with just my shadow in front
	Fsus2/G [2 bars]
	At six o'clock, six o'clock

Verse 2:

	I went home and found that time to sleep was rare
	Just watching my eyelids, knowing my brain bids the night not
	     to care
	I got up and got scufflin' around
	But somehow it just wasn't the same happy town
	And the bells didn't ring with the same happy sound
	At six o'clock, six o'clock

Bridge:

	F/G                       G
	   If I go back where we parted
	F/G                   G
	   Could I ever feel like that again
	F/G                                     G
	   Guess I'll just have to wait 'til tomorrow
	D                Dsus4
	  But what can I  do 'til then

Verse 3:

	Guess I'll go back home and just wait until dawn
	Yes, I had to learn going back where we were wouldn't help at all
	And I wish my head had been working right
	We'd have gone for coffee and talked all night
	And now I'm back alone, bein' twisted up tight
	Six o'clock, six o'clock

Coda:

	 G            D   C   G
	Now I'm back alone
	      G             D   C   G
	Yes, now I'm back alone
	     G         D   C   G
	I'm back alone

	G   D    C   G        [repeat to fade]
