††††††††††††††††† ††††††A†††††††††††††††††† E††††††††††††††††††††††† Fm††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††D

1. When that April with her sprouty shooters pierces our March right through to the rooters,

†††††††††††††††††††††† E††††††††††††† A††† E

o what a day! o what a day!

†††††††† A†††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††E††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††Fm†††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††D

The cold is cured, now the winterís endured; the pigeon on the porch just gave me the word

†††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††E†††††††††††† A†††

he said o what a day! o what a day!

 

†††††††††† †††††A††††††††††† D†††††††††††††† E††††††††††††††††††† ††A†††

Chorus: Precious springtime, carry myself to me

†††††††††† ††D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† E††††††††††††††††††††† E7††††† A†††

I have never been so ready; I have never been so in need.

A††††††††† †††D†††††††††††† E†††††††††††††††††††† A†††

Storm of sunshine, beat me till I bleed.

†††††††† D†††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††E††††††††††† E7†††††††† A†† DE E7 A

I am rolling home as bleached as a bone, as big as a bursting seed.

 

†††††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††††††††††† E††††††††††††††††††††††† Fm†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††D

2. Itís been so long since Iíve uncovered my heart, since Iíve given my all or taken my part,

†††††††††††††††††††††† E††††††††††††† A††† E

now o what a day! o what a day!

†††††††† A†††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††E†††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††

Cause now all the people are out on the street,

†††††††††††††††† Fm†††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††D

or theyíre down in the backyard with mud on their feet

†††††††††† E†††††††††††††††††††† E7††††††††††† A†††

singing o what a day! o what a day!
