Can’t Trust the Groundhog

There’s no more dogsled racing in Alaska.              G C D                  Capo 2
Anchorage is running out of snow.                            Em Am D
Got some brand new beaches,                                     C  D
Might start growing peaches                                      G Em
But Chicago’s sixty-five below                                  A7  D

Clouds are hanging low in Punxsutawney.
Fame and fortune gonna soon be gone.
And I don’t like the reason, it’s the chaos in the seasons
But I can’t deny just how we brought it on    

And people say it’ll never be the way it was before         C D G C
You just can’t trust that groundhog anymore                Am D G–
C D  G   C /   Am D  G
But I’m worried about Phil, he’s been so faithful.
And now his job has simply disappeared.
‘Cause it doesn’t really matter – if he sees his shadow
Winter’s getting shorter every year.
And people say it’ll never be the way it was before         C D G C
You just can’t trust that groundhog anymore                 Am D G–

BOOGIE
Yeah but Phil’s an American groundhog.                      E7
And he’s proving the politicians wrong.                            A7
He’s seen the light, and he’s just begun to fight,          G  B7   E7
Show ’em we could do it all along!                                  A7 D7    GG  D B7

And he’s lighting a fire under the White House
And he’s marching on Capitol Hill
Going nose to nose, gonna bite ’em on their toes!
If they won’t do it, —  Punxatawney will!

The groundhog’s settling the score! E7
There’s no saying no anymore! A7  D   G  G   D   B7
