# Intro (x4)
D D D7 D7 D D D7 D7 D D D7 D7 D D D7 D7

D D
Lazy yeller moon comin' up tonight, shinin' through the trees,
G G
Crickets are singin' and the lightnin' bugs are floatin' on the breeze,
D D
Baby get ready.
D D
Across the field where the creek turns back by the old stump row,
G G
I'm gonna take you to a special place that nobody knows,
D D
Baby get ready
A7 A7
Ooooooh-ooh!

#Chorus
D D
You and me goin' fishin' in the dark, lyin' on our backs and coutin' the stars,
G G
Where the cool grass grows.
D D
Down by the river in the cool moonlight, we'll be fallin' in love in the middle of the night,
G G
Just movin' slow.
Em Em A A Em Em A A D D
Stayin' the whole night through, feels so good to be with you.

D D
Spring's almost over and the summer's coming, the days are getting long,
G G
I've waited all winter for the time to be right just to take you along,
D D
Baby get ready,
D D
And it don't matter if we sit forever and the fish don't bite,
G G
We'll jump in the river and cool ourselves from the heat of the night,
D D
Baby get ready
A7 A7
Ooooooh-ooh!

#Chorus (x2 then fade out)

I just do a ddddud strum kind of thing for the verse. Then just a couple down strums for each chord in the chorus.
