Seasons in the Sun  
Kingston Trio 

 G 
Adieu, Emile, my trusted friend,  
                                      Am D 
We've known each other since we were nine or ten. 
                              G         
Together we climbed hills and trees,  
                         Am 
Learned of love and A B Cs, 
             D G 
Skinned our hearts and skinned our knees. 
 
Adieu, Emile, it's hard to die 
                                Am D 
When all the birds are singing in the sky. 
                           G 
Now that the Spring is in the air’ 
                       Am 
Pretty girls are ev'rywhere.
 D G 
Think of me and I'll be there. 


                              Am 
We had joy we had fun we had seasons in the sun 
         D D7 G 
But the hills we would climb were just seasons out of time 


 G 
Adieu, Papa, please pray for me.  
                              Am D 
I was the black sheep of the family. 
                                  G 
You tried to teach me right from wrong. 
                            Am 
Too much wine and too much song, 
        D G 
Wonder how I got along. 
  
Adieu, Papa, it's hard to die 
                                Am D 
When all the birds are singing in the sky. 
                           G 
Now that spring is in the air, 
                      Am D 
Little children everywhere, 
                           G 
When you see them I'll be there. 


                              Am 
We had joy we had fun we had seasons in the sun 
         D D7 G   
But the wine and the song like the seasons have all gone. 

 G 
Adieu, Francoise, my trusted wife, 
                      Am D 
Without you I'd have had a lonely life. 
                               G  
You cheated lots of times but then,  
                      Am 
I forgave you in the end 
             D G 
though your lover was my friend. 

 
Adieu, Francoise, it's hard to die 
                                Am D 
When all the birds are singing in the sky. 
                           G 
Now that spring is in the air 
                       Am D 
With your lovers everywhere; 
                          G 
Just be careful, I'll be there. 


                                  Am 
All our lives we had fun. We had seasons in the sun, 

         D D7 G 
But the hills we would climb were just seasons out of time. 
 
Adieu, Emile. Adieu, Papa. Adieu, Francoise. 

                                  Am 
All our lives we had fun, we had seasons in the sun, 
         D D7 G 
But the hills we would climb were just seasons out of time 
                                  Am 
All our lives we had fun, we had seasons in the sun, 
         D D7 G 
But the stars we could reach were just starfish on the beach.
