  1. Hello Jay:
    Love your music – I’m a campfire guitarist at best. Would love to learn the chords to “Lily” as I haven’t been able to find them anywhere.
    My daughters (7 & 11) & I have “Lily” in our “stuck in traffic” sing along songs & it’s a hoot to hear them sing “living is easy when you live in the city of sin.” Haven’t introduced them to Chaka Khan yet – great lyrics.
    If/when you find the time would much appreciate it.
    Thanks for the great music.
    Pete

    1. Hey Pete. Thanks for the message my friend. Warms me up knowing about the sing-along.

      Here are the chords to that song. Best to use a Capo on the 3rd fret but you can sing it with this progression in any key you like. Take care… JS

      LILY

      C
      In the morning, I got a pretty good start
      C
      I’m not the best with the words but I got a big heart
      C
      I rolled over, luckily my jeans beside the bed
      C F
      I rolled back, kissed the girl on her head… Good-bye
      F C F
      She was only wearing a smile so I remember it was hard to say good-bye
      F G F C
      but I did it… oh Lily don’t cry

      C
      Chaka Khan filled the hallways of the casino
      I made my way from the room to the camino
      I’m a stranger in a strange world
      This Las Vegas is a circus as I’m sure you’ve heard
      F C
      So good-bye to that girl in room eleven twenty five
      F G F C
      Good-bye… oh Lily don’t cry

      F
      Out the door and out in the parking lot
      C
      The day gets simpler, just try and get out of the hot
      F
      Crack the window, get out on the highway
      C
      Barstow in an hour then I’m on to L.A.
      G
      Faster then lightning, come on baby you can win
      F C
      Leaving is easy when you’re leaving the city of sin

      C
      Back home, I’ll draw a picture for yah
      A backyard barbecue with a wife and a daughter
      This is life in L.A. my friend and I’ll do what I want
      F C
      Again and again and again, cause I’m an American
      G F C G F C
      oh I’m sure Lily doesn’t mind… Oh until maybe next time

      F C
      Lily gets me on the phone, says “I don’t want to cry no more!”
      F C
      “I’m tired of you going back to your wife and treating me like a whore”
      So I said…
      G
      Faster then lightning, come on baby you can win
      F C
      Leaving is easy when you’re leaving the city of sin
      G
      Faster then lightning, come on baby you can win
      F C
      Leaving is easy when you’re leaving the city of sin
