G                        C         G                       D

Hey where did we go, days when the rains came
G                         C       G             D
Down in the hollow, playin' a new game
G                       C                     G                            D
Laughin' and a-runnin' hey, hey, skippin’ and a-jumpin’
G                      C                      G                 D                                C
In the misty mornin' fog with, ah, our hearts thumpin' with you
D                          G     Em      C                   D           G            D 
My brown-eyed girl,              you’re my brown-eyed girl

G                    C           G                D
Whatever happened, Tuesday is so slow
G                    C                      G                        D
Goin’ down the old mine with a transistor radio
G                           C                       G                               D
Standin’ in the sunlight laughin’, hidin’ behind a rainbow's wall
G                          C             G                   D                  C 
Slippin’ and a-slidin’ all along the waterfall with you
D                         G    Em C D G
My brown-eyed girl,             you’re my brown-eyed girl
