{c:Intro riff:}

                                                   G Gop C      D7    G 
                                                 < riff after each line  >

[G]I'm a gonna raise a fuss I'm a-gonna raise a holler         [C]  [D7]  [G] 
[G]About a-workin' all summer just a-trying to earn a dollar   [C]  [D7]  [G]
Every [C]time I call my baby, try to get a date
The boss says [G]"No dice son you gotta work a-late"
Some[C]times I wonder what I'm a gonna do
But there [G]ain't no cure for the [D7]Summertime [G ]Blues    [C]  [D7]  [G]

{c:repeat Intro riff}

[G]Well my Mom and Pappa told me "Son you gotta earn some money[C]  [D7]  [G]
[G]If you wanna use the car to go a riding next Sunday"        [C]  [D7]  [G]
Well I [C] didn't got to work told the boss I was sick
[G]"Now you can't use the car cause you didn't work a lick"
Some[C]times I wonder what I'm a gonna do
But there [G]ain't no cure for the [D7]Summertime [G ]Blues    [C]  [D7]  [G]
{c:repeat Intro riff}

It's gonna take two weeks for I have my vacation,
I'm gonna take my problem to the United Nations.
Well I told my congress man and he said, quote:
"I'd like to help you son but you're too young to vote"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do,
But there ain't no cure for the Summertime Blues.
