A Hit By Varèse

Words & Music:

Robert Lamm (Chicago)



Please won't you sing me a thing that will bring me right into the sky?

Ab7                                                 C7#9

If you would play it, just lay it down, say it will help me get by.


[Eb5 Db5  D5   C5 arpeggio riff]    C7#9  [repeat]


Something to move me, remove me and groove me, you want to know why?

I'm so tired of oldies and moldies and goldies, that I want to cry.


[Eb5 Db5  D5   C5 arpeggio riff]    C7#9  [repeat]


Can you play free or in three or agree to attempt something new?

The people need you a seed that will lead to a hit by Varèse, Var¸se.


[Eb5 Db5  D5   C5 arpeggio riff]  [4x]
