"Funny thing but you can sing it with a cry in your voice....
and before you know it start to feeling good, you simply got no choice"
Neil Diamond wrote the words and music to Song Sung Blue in 1972. For more information regarding the song, visit http://en.wikipedia.org

It's a great song played with a swing feel, 4/4 time signature in the Key of C. I have always loved Neil's voice and his style. I got the chords online but the only thing I would add or change is the intro. Try playing:

C
C/Bb
Am
Fmaj7
G7
