Mungo Jerry – In the Summertime (Chords)

I can relate to this song’s take on summer. Not so much the drinking, driving and leching. More the writing half a line of a song, running out of brain power and just lapsing into dee-dee-dees. This song has some seriously awful lyrics. But the main reason I’m tabbing it is Tom Richter‘s excellent ukulele version.

The only downside with the version is that he’s using the very high E- tuning (b-E-G#-C#). But it’s very easy to replecate that tuning by slapping a capo on the fourth fret.

If you don’t have a capo, here are the chords in non-capo form:

In the Summertime (No Capo Chords)

Suggested Strumming

Here’s a simple strum you can use all the way through:

d u x u – u d u

Twiddly Bits

In the Summertime (Intro Tab)

Here’s a tab of that fantastic intro.

For the solo the basic chords are the same as the verse. But he’s throwing in all sorts of variations: 6, 7, sus2, sus4. Knock yourself out.
