Summer [Am] time ... [E7] and the livin' is [Am] easy.    
Fish are [Dm] jumpin' ... and the cotton is [E7] high.
Your daddy's [Am] rich ... and your [E7] mama's good- [Am] lookin',    
So [C] hush, little [Am] baby,  [E7] don't you [Am] cry.

[Am] One of these mornings, [E7]  you're gonna rise up [Am] singin'
Then you'll [Dm] spread your wings and you'll take to the [E7] sky.
But till that [Am] morning, [E7]  there's a'nothing can [Am] harm you
With [C] daddy and [Am] mamma  [E7]   standing  [Am] by....
