[Verse] D A D A D Life is not a highway strewn with flowers D A D A D Still it holds a goodly share of bliss F#m C#7 F#m C#7 F#m B7 When the sun gives way to April showers Em E7 A A7 Here's the point that you should never miss [Chorus] A D Though April Showers may come your way A7 D They bring the flowers that bloom in May B7 Em So if it's raining have no regrets E7 Because it isn't raining rain you know A7 It's raining violets D And where you see clouds upon the hills B7 Em B7 Em You soon will see crowds of daffodils G Gm So keep on looking for a bluebird D B7 and listening for his song Em A7 D whenever April showers come along
