Tabbed by: Adam Thomas

Capo 2 	Intro: G, C/G(hammer)

G                G/F#           Em7
Here’s a hymn to welcome in the day
G              G/F#          Em7
Heralding the summer’s early sway
             C                  C/B   Am7 (walk up)
And all the bulbs all coming in...to begin
C                  C/B             Am7 
Thrushes bleating battle with the wrens
             C/G       D/F#
Disrupts my reverie again

Pegging clothing on the line
Training jasmine how to vine 
Up the arbor to your door...and more
You’re standing on the landing with the war
You shouldered all the night before

C                  D
  And once upon it, the yellow bonnets
G                 C
  Garland all the lawn
Am7                   D
  And you were waking, day was breaking
G               C
  A panoply of song
D(slide)               C                (Intro)
 And summer comes to Springville Hill

A barony of ivy in the trees
Expanding out its empire by degrees
And all the branches burst to bloom...in the boom
Heaven sent this cardinal maroon
To decorate our living room

Once upon it...

C               D                Em            C           Am7
And years from now when this old light isn’t ambling anymore,
           D             G  G/F#  Em7   C
Will I bring myself to write--------------
                   D               (Intro)          
 “I give my best to Springville Hill”

Once upon it...

(Intro x1) D(slide)
           (Summer comes to Springville Hill)
