Verse 1:

        Summertime
        And the living is easy
        Fish are jumpin'
        And the cotton is high

        Your daddy's rich
        And your mama's good lookin'
        So hush little baby now
          don't you cry

Verse 2:

        One of these mornin's
        You're gonna rise up singin'
        You're gonna spread your wings
        And take to the sky

        But til that mornin'
        Ain't nothin' can harm you
        With your daddy & your mammy
          standin' by


My arrangement:

  Intro:       prog-1
  Verse-1:     prog-1
               prog-2
               prog-1b
               prog-3
  Verse-2:     (same as Verse-1, except use chords from 2nd-half of
               prog-3 instead of chords from prog-1)
  Solo:
  Verse-1:
  Ending:      Repeat last line with prog-3 again, then
               repeat last line with prog-3b, very slowly.
               (It's nice to add a descending scale between the
               F9+6 & E7+5 chords.  Try an Fmaj scale from middle-F,
               and ending on the low-E.)
