Intro

(Key of G)

G6/9  Cmaj7  G/B  Em  Eb7  D7


Gm(maj7) Gm7  Gm6  Gm+  Gm  Em7b5
Some people need a lot of money
       Eb7      D7         Gm7
and nothin' else but money
                       G9        C9
to make their life complete.
      Gm/D Cm6/D  Gm
Not me, not me.

Gm (maj7) Gm7 Gm6 Gm+ Gm Em7b5
I haven't got a lot of money
       Eb7    D7         Gm7
but life is milk and honey.

                   G9       C9            Gm/Bb
Yes, life is mighty sweet you see
          A7              Am7/D  D7
this is my philosophy.

(Key of G)

G            
As I walk down the street
C
Seems everyone I meet
G                                    G9  c7
Gives me a friendly hello
Gm6/Bb A7 Am7/D  D9       G6    Fmaj7   Eb     D7
I guess I'm just a lucky so and so


G                           C
The birds in every tree

Are all so neighborly
G                               G9    C7
They sing wherever I go
Gm6/Bb  A7  C/D  Am7  D9         G  Fmaj7  Eb  D7b9
I guess I'm just a lucky so and so

G                   C13
If you should ask me the amount
Gmaj7
In my bank account
      C13                                      Gmaj7
I'd have to confess that I'm slippin'
      F#m7b5              B7   em         G#m7b5
But that don't worry me, confidentially
                D/A     A7b9     Am7/D  D9
I've got a dream that's a-pippin'

G                               
And when the day is through
C                          
Each night I hurry to
G                                         G9        C7
A home where love waits, I know
Gm6/Bb  A7  Am7/D   D9  G6  Fmaj7  Eb  D7
I guess I'm just a lucky so and so

G
And when the day is through
C
Each night I hurry to
G                                          G9      C7
A home where love waits, I know
Gm6/Bb  Am7/D  D9                G  C/G  G6/9
I guess I'm just a lucky so and so
