                             "Six O'Clock"
                            (John Sebastian)


	clavinet arr. for guitar [4X; vocal and flutes (mellotron?) enter
	  3rd time]:

	 G               Fsus2
	 v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v

	         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: https://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
	             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


	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


	 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]
