Fmaj7                Cmaj7

{Verse 1]
Fmaj7                                        Cmaj7  [Riff]
Chewin' on a piece of grass walkin' down the road
Fmaj7                                        Cmaj7  [Riff]
   tell   me,   how   long   you   gonna     stay here Joe?
Fmaj7                                        Cmaj7  [Riff]
Some  people  say  this  town  don't  look   good in snow
Fmaj7                                        Cmaj7  [End of Verse Fill]
   You   don't   care,                       I know.

[Chorus]
Fmaj7                   Cmaj7
Ventura Highway, in the  sunshine
          Fmaj7                                         Cmaj7
Where the days are longer  The nights are stronger than moonshine
Fmaj7                      Cmaj7
   You're gonna go         I know  ooo-oh  ooo-o-ooo-oh  ooo-oh ooo-o-ooo-oh
          Dm7                  Em
Cause the free wind is blowin' through your hair
        Dm7                Em
And the day surrounds your daylight there
Dm7               Em
 Season's crying, no despair
    Dm7            Em                Fmaj7  [Intro Riff]  
Alligator, lizards in the air, in the air


Cmaj7                Fmaj7
[Intro Riff + Strumming]    x2
Doo Do Doo   Doo Do Doo


{Verse 2]
Fmaj7                                        Cmaj7  [Riff]
Wishin' on a fallin' star   Waitin' for the  early train
Fmaj7                                        Cmaj7  [Riff]
Sorry   boy,   but   I've  been   hit   by   purple rain
Fmaj7                                        Cmaj7  [Riff]
Aw,  come on  Joe,    you   can   always     change your name
Fmaj7                                        Cmaj7  [End of Verse Fill]
Thanks    a lot     son,      just    the     same


[Repeat Chorus]

Cmaj7                Fmaj7
[Intro Riff + Strumming]    x2  then Cmaj7 (Hold)
Doo Do Doo   Doo Do Doo
