April Showers
Intro Verse:

D       Em7    A        Em7        D      A7
Life is not a highway strewn with flowers;

 D       Em7      A      Em7       D
Still it holds a goodly share of bliss;

F#m      Bm        F#m    Fdim    F#m       B7
When the sun gives way to April showers,

 A         Bm7-5       E7       bm7-5    A  Em7  D9   A7
Here's the point that you should never miss. 


 A    AM7   A    A7       A   E7   A    D9 
Though A - pril showers, may come your way, 

 A    AM7   A   A7       A    E7   A   D9
They bring the flowers, that bloom in May, 

D  Em7 E7   B7          Cdim    Em      B+
So if it's raining, have no regrets, 

    Em7    E7     Bm7-5   E7       Cdim
Because it isn't raining rain, you know, 

      A    Cm7-5       A
It's raining vi - o - lets. 

A    AM7  A  A7          A    E7  A   D9
And when you see clouds, up - on the hills, 

A    AM7  A   B7             Cdim        Em
You soon will see crowds, of daf - fo - dils. 

    B+      G      G/F#   Em7       Gdim
So keep on looking for a bluebird, 

     D     Bm7      B7
And listen for his song 

    G    E7     A7      Em7 A7    D
Whenever April showers come a - long.
