*from 'Songs In The Key Of Life' (1976)*


*CAPO 4th FRET*

(Original Key: B)


Intro:

Gmaj7 G7    Cmaj7
   Do do do do, mmm-mmm-mmm,
Gmaj7 G7        Cmaj7
   Do do do, do do do.

Verse 1:

     Gmaj7
As a-round the sun,
    G7                   Cmaj7
The earth knows she's re-volving,
        Gmaj7
And the rosebuds,
                       Fmaj7
Know to bloom in early May.

        Gmaj7                 G7
Just as hate knows love's the cure;
        Cmaj7          C6
You can rest your mind assure,
     Em             B7     Em   A  Am  D7
That I'll be loving you al-ways.

Verse 2:

       Gmaj7
As now can't reveal,
    G7            Cmaj7
The mystery of to-morrow,
       Gmaj7
But in passing,
                      Fmaj7
Will grow older every day.

        Gmaj7   G7
Just as all, is new;
         Cmaj7         C6
You know what I say is true.
     Em             F#m7
That I'll be loving you always.

Chorus 1:

Em         E+
 Until the rainbow,
          Em7              A7
Burns the stars out of the sky, (always).
Em         E+
 Until the ocean,
       Em7            A7
Covers every mountain high, (always).

Em         E+
 Until the dolphin flies,
    Em7             A7
And parrots live at sea, (always).
Em        E+
 Until we dream of life,
    Em7            C#
And life becomes a dream.

Bridge 1:

Cmaj7
 Did you know that,
                   Gmaj7
True love asks for nothing?
Cmaj7
 Her acceptance,
              Fmaj7
Is the way we pay.

Cmaj7
 Did you know that,
               Gmaj7
Life has given love a guarantee?
                    Am7
To last through for-ever,
            Bsus  B  Dsus  D
And another day.

Verse 3:

        Gmaj7
Just as time knew,
        G7              Cmaj7
To move on since the be-gininning,
        Gmaj7
And the seasons,
                     Fmaj7
Know exactly when to change.

        Gmaj7             G7
Just as kindness knows no shame;
             Cmaj7            C6
Know through all your joy and pain;
     Em             B7     Em   A  Am  D7
That I'll be loving you al-ways.

Verse 4:

      Gmaj7
As to-day I know,
    G7             Cmaj7
I'm living, but to-morrow;
           Gmaj7
Could make me the past,
                   Fmaj7
But that I mustn't fear.

         Gmaj7           G7
For I'll know deep in my mind;
            Cmaj7           C6
The love of me I've left be-hind;
     Em             F#m7
That I'll be loving you always.

Chorus 2:

Em         E+
 Until the day is night,
    Em7               A7
And night becomes the day, (always).
Em         E+
 Until the trees and sea,
     Em7          A7
Just up and fly a-way, (always).

Em         E+         Em7    A7
 Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4, (always).
Em         E+
 Until the day, that is the day,
            A7
That are no more, (always).

Em         E+
 Until the day the earth starts,
Em7               A7
 Turning right to left, (always).
Em         E+                 Em7
 Until the earth just for the sun,
          A7
Denies it-self, (always).
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/stevie_wonder/as_crd_ver_2.html ]
Em          E+
 Until dear Mother Nature,
Em7
 Says her work is through, (always).
Em         E+               Em7
 Until the day that you are me,
         A7
And I am you, (always).

Em         E+
 Until the rainbow,
          Em7              A7
Burns the stars out of the sky, (always).
Em         E+
 Until the ocean,
       Em7            A7
Covers every mountain high, (always).

Break:

       Em         E+
We all know, some-times life's,
          Em7      A7
Hates and troubles,
             Em
Can make you wish you were born,
     E+              Em7    A7
In a-nother time and space.

            Em       E+
But you can bet your life times,
Em7                  A7
 That and twice it's double;
                 Em
That God knew ex-actly where,
   E+               Em7     A7
He wanted you to be placed.

        Em
So make sur when you say,
       E+             Em7    A7
You're in it, but not of it,
           Em
You're not helping to make this,
E+                              Em7   A7
 Earth a place sometimes called Hell.

            Em         E+
Change your words into truths,
                     Em7        A7
And then change that truth into love,

              Em
And maybe our children's grandchildren,
          E+                             Em7   A7
And their great-great grandchildren will tell.
