MacArthur Park chords  Jim Webb / Richard Harris *


Dm Dm Eb Gm


Dm F
Spring was never waiting for us, girl

It ran one step ahead

Between the parted pages and were pressed,

Eb

In love's hot, fevered iron

Gm Gm Bb G# Gm

Like a striped pair of pants



C Cmaj7

MacArthur Park is melting in the dark

C11

All the sweet, green icing flowing down...

F Fmaj7

Someone left the cake out in the rain

C

and I don't think that I can take it

Dm7

'cause it took so long to bake it

C Cmaj7 C

and I'll never have that recipe again

Eb

Oh, no!



Dm F

I recall the yellow cotton dress

Eb

foaming like a wave

Gm Gm Bb G# Gm

on the ground around your knees

The birds, like tender babies in your hands

and the old men playing checkers by the trees
