Actually, that didn't work so well. I did simply type theguitarguy.com into the address slot and wound up at the site which, incidentally, has Willie's chords for the tune. vl

Try this link to the Guitar Guy. (The original was missing a couple of forward slashes after the colon.)

You smoked me out, Murray--As luck would have it, I was working on a chord/melody thing with this tune just last week--here are the regular chords, in Dm--four counts between each / /:

Blue Skies (chords)

(2x)
||:DmDm/DmMaj7 DmMaj7/
Dm7 Dm7/G7 G7/
F F6/Gm7C7//F F6/Gm7 C7:||
(Bridge)
||F F/Bbm F/Gm F/C7 F/
F F/Bbm F/Gm F/C7 F-A7||

||DmDm/DmMaj7 DmMaj7/
Dm7 Dm7/G7 G7/
F F6/Gm7C7//F F6/F F6||

It is the same as the minor part in "Gentle on My Mind" the Dm would be:

X-O-O-2-3-1

X-O-O-2-2-1

and the dm7:

X-O-O-2-1-1

That second fingering, X-O-O-2-2-1, is the D minor/major 7th--sorry--

Coincidence, M. Ted? Hmmmm.... I wonder if there's some kind of telepathy going on... *G*

Possibly, Genie, or it just might be that, since Blue Skies is one of the most popular songs ever, there is always some one learning it, some one playing it, and some one discovering it--
