                [Intro]
 
Sounds like Amaj7 and E7sus4 (x2) plus some fingerpicked notes TBD
 
[Chorus 1]
F#7#5                  Bm7
Did you say I've got a lot to learn?
E7                           Amaj7
Well, don't think I'm trying not to learn
F#7#5                    Bm7
Since this is the perfect spot to learn
E7          Amaj7sus2 Amaj7   F#7#5  F#7#5
Teach me tonight
 
 
[Chorus 2]
F#7#5                  Bm7
Starting with the A, B, C of it
E7                      Amaj7
Right down to the X, Y, Z of it
F#7#5                 Bm7
Help me solve the mystery of it
E7          Amaj7
Teach me tonight
 
 
[Verse 1]
E7sus4    F#7#5        Bm7
Oh    the sky's a blackboard
E7         Amaj7
High above you
          Bm7               C#m7
And if a shooting star goes by
     Bm7      C#m7     A(5)     C#m7
I'll use that star to write, "I love you"
  F#m9     F#m7     Bm7      E7   F#7#5  F#7#5
A thousand times across the sky
 
 
[Chorus 3]
F#7#5                 Bm7
One thing isn't very clear, my love
E7                          Amaj7
Should the teacher stand so near my love
F#7#5                Bm7
Graduation's almost here my love
E7          Amaj7
Teach me tonight
 
 
[Verse 1]
E7sus4    F#7#5        Bm7
Oh    the sky's a blackboard
E7         Amaj7
High above you
         Bm7                C#m7
And if a shooting star goes by
     Bm7      C#m7     A(5)     C#m7
I'll use that star to write, "I love you"
  F#m9     F#m7     Bm7      E7  F#7#5  F#7#5
A thousand times across the sky
 
 
[Chorus 4]

Mmm, one thing isn't very clear, my love
E7                          Amaj7
Should the teacher stand so near my love
F#7#5                Bm7
Graduation's almost here my love
E7          Amaj7sus2 Amaj7
Teach me tonight
