SONG SUNG BLUE – Guitar Lesson

Neil Diamond was nominated for best record and best song at the 1973 Grammys for this mellow less-is-more song! He lost out to Roberta Flack but Song Sung Blue is still a winner with his fans!

Song sung blue
          G
Everybody knows one
G7
Song sung blue
             C
Every garden grows one

C7                              F
Me and you, are subject to, the blues now and then
    G
But when you take the blues and make a song
              C
You sing them out again
          Dm       G
Sing them out again

C
Song sung blue
               G
Weeping like a willow
G7
Song sung blue
               C
Sleeping on my pillow

C7                                      F                 F 
Funny thing, but you can sing it with a cry in your voice
G                      
And before you know it, start to feeling good
           C           G
You simply got no choice
