Lemonade Man Blues

©2013 Garrett Clevenger

 

E††† ABE†††††††††† I've some lemonade made from the lemons that life gave me.

A††† B†† E †††††††††††† It's still a little sour from the bitterness in me.

A††† B†† EBA ††† Won't you add some sugar to sweeten it up then I'll fill your empty cup.

EAEBE†††† ††† Itíll pucker your lips so gobble it down baby.

 

E††† ABE†††††††††† Honey I see you out on the street.

A††† B†† E †††††††††††† From this view you're lookin' pretty sweet.

A††† B†† EBA ††† There's just one thing I gotta ask, "Can I pretty please fill your glass?"

EAEBE†††† ††† Next to you I'd love to take a seat.

 

Chorus:

CGAE†††††††††††† I'm a lemonade man. I do what I can.

CGC††††††† E†††††† Turning bitterness into sweetness.Can I get a kiss?

CGABE†††††† It sure would help to have your loving hand.

 

E††† ABE††††††††† One good thing about living in a college town.

A††† B†† E †††††††††††† Is the knowledge that everyone is drinking down.

A††† B†† EBA ††† No one wants to work all the time. There's something to be said about freeing your mind.

EAEBE†††† ††† Sweet fruit helps turn your frown around.

 

E††† ABE††††††††† I'm gettin' whiplash from turning my head too fast.

A††† B†† E †††††††††††† A wise man knows that love don't have to last.

A††† B†† EBA ††† There are plenty of fish swimming in the sea. Loneliness ain't our destiny.

EAEBE†††† ††† Take those lemons and leave them in the past.
