Intro| G . . . | C . D . | (repeat, end on C and let ring)
VerseG C D G He worked hard all year, just wanted a few weeks alone But his old lady's into modeling, she can't get away from the phone C D G Besides, she bitches about the mosquitoes She says down there, there is nothing to do Her goddamn phone never stops ringing She'll try the service in a day, maybe two He's on his third drink before the wheels of the plane leave the ground Making talk with the stewardess high over Long Island sound She's also spending some time on the islands Too much city madness gives her the blues They make a date to go dancing and dining It seems neither has that much to lose
ChorusG C G The weather is here, I wish you were beautiful G F D My thoughts aren't too clear, but don't run away G C G My girlfriend's a bore, my job is too dutiful C G F D Hell, nobodies perfect, would you like to play? G I feel together today [repeat intro chords] Well now, that's just the start of a well-deserved, over-do binge Meanwhile back in the city certain people are starting to cringe His lawyers are calling his parents His girlfriend doesn't know what to think His partners are studying their options He's just singing and ordering drinks The weather is here, I wish you were beautiful The skies are too clear, life's so easy today The beer is too cold, the daiquiris too fruit-i-ful No place like home when your this far away I don't care what they say He's going back to New York, pack it up and let everyone know It was something that he should have done such a long time ago Still time to start a new life in the palm trees Ah, Billy Clyde wasn't insane And if it doesn't work out, they'll never be any doubt That the pleasure was worth all the pain The weather is here, I wish you were beautiful The skies are too clear, life's so easy today The beer is too cold, the daiquiris too fruit-i-ful No place like home when your this far away
OutroG C D G I need time for to play... I need time for to play... I need time for to play... I need time for to play... I need time for to play... I need time for to play... I need time for to play... I need time for to play...

Here's a list of the 173 songs I've added to the site since December 2012. Each song was added by me personally.
Songs are grouped by the year they were released.
My name is David Potsiadlo, and I created Songnotes to share my collection of guitar tabs, chords, and lyrics for my favorite songs.
Since I started playing guitar over 10 years ago, I've often been frustrated by the preponderance of mediocre and incomplete song tabs littered across the internet. To combat this, I started keeping my own collection of notes for each song I learn -- always taking the extra time to make sure accuracy and completeness are never compromised. Years later, my collection grew to the point where I knew I had to share it online with fellow aspiring musicians.
In December 2012, I began designing & developing a website that became Songnotes. Here, I share my personal collection of hand-crafted music notation with all those online. I hope you enjoy.
