Lazy River

Hoagy Carmichael and Sidney Arodin

4:4 Key:C
Start as duet accompanying themselves

[A7]Up a lazy river by the old mill-run,
That [D7^]lazy, lazy river in the noonday sun.
[G7]Linger in the shade of a kind old tree;
[C^]Throw away your troubles, dream a dream with me[B][Bb]

bass comes in


[A7]Up a lazy river where the robin’s song
Aa-[D7^]wakes a bright new morning, we can loaf along.
[F]Blue skies up a-[F#dim]bove, [C]everyone’s in [A7]love;
[D7]Up a lazy [G7]river, how [C]happy you can [A7]be,
[D7]Up a lazy [G7]river with [C]me
everybody comes in

[A7]Up a lazy river with me
[D7]Up a lazy river with me
everybody drops out except the original duo

[TACET]We'll sit down under a tree
With a pound of biscuits and a cup of tea
everybody comes in

[A7]Up a lazy river with me
[D7]Up a lazy river with me
everybody drops out except the original duo

[TACET]We'll sit down in the shade
With cheese and pickle sandwiches and lemonade
all together

[A7]Up a lazy river by the old mill-run,
That [D7^]lazy, lazy river in the noonday sun.
[G7]Linger in the shade of a kind old tree;
[C^]Throw away your troubles, dream a dream with me[B][Bb]
[A7]Up a lazy river where the robin’s song
A-[D7^]wakes a bright new morning, we can loaf along.
[F]Blue skies up a-[F#dim]bove, [C]everyone’s in [A7]love;
[D7]up a lazy [G7]river, how [C]happy you can [A7]be,
[D7]Up a lazy [G7]river…….[C]without a p[A7]addle,
[D7]Up…….. a lazy [G7]river………. with [C]me
everybody finishes on the last C except one who does the last flourish
