(Johnny Mercer and Hoagy Carmichael)

	  		
Intro: Verse 

A                 D9           F7       E7  F7      E7      A      E7 
Long as there is chicken gravy on your rice,  ev'rything is nice 
A                 D9         F7      E7   F7      E7      A     D9   A 
Long as there's a watermelon on the vine,  ever'thing is fine 
       A7     G7       F#7     F7      F#7 
You've got no time to work, no time to play 
B7                          F7        E7 
Busy doin' nothin' all the live long day 
A                D9       F7             E7 
You won't ever change, no matter what I say  
F7           E7        A 
You're just made that way
 
Melody 
A  A7   D9     A       A7     D9 
Lazy   bones, sleepin' in the sun 
A          A7     D9       A           A7 
How you 'spect to get your day's work done 
        D9            Dm7         E7   D9             F7   E7  A 
You'll never get your day's work done sleepin' in the noon day sun 
A  A7   D9     A       A7     D9 
Lazy   bones, sleepin' in the shade 
A          A7     D9       A          A7 
How you 'spect to get your cornmeal made 
        D9            Dm   Dm7 E7    D9             F7     E7    A 
You'll never get your cornmeal made sleepin' in the evening shade 

Bridge 
A7    D            D6         A  
When taters need sprayin', I bet you keep prayin' 
     D9       Cdim     A         
The bugs fall off the vine 
     A           G#7       G7            F#7       
And when you go fishin' I bet you keep wishin' 
          D9         F7            E7 
That the fish won't grab at your line 
A  A7   D9     A       A7     D9 
Lazy   bones, loafin' through the day 
A          A7     D9       A        A7 
How you 'spect to make a dime that way 
        D9           Dm   Dm7 E7    D9  
You'll never make a dime that way 
            F7  E7 A 
Never heard a word I say. 

Interlude: A D9 F7 E7 F7 E7 A E7 A D9 F7 E7 F7 E7 A D9 A 

A7    D            D6         A  
When taters need sprayin', I bet you keep prayin' 
     D9       Cdim     A         
The bugs fall off the vine 
     A           G#7       G7            F#7       
And when you go fishin' I bet you keep wishin' 
          D9         F7            E7 
That the fish won't grab at your line 
            F7  E7 A 
Never heard a word I say.
