Have any of you Emmett Miller fans worked out the chords for "Take Your Tomorrow And Give Me Today" (Jimmy Johnson, Andy Razaf) as recorded by Emmett. It is on the "Minstrel Man From Georgia" CD.

If so can you please post them?

Thanks

JAB

P.S. The chords/lyrics of any of the other songs on the CD would also be Welcome, Especially "Right or Wrong", "That's the Good Old Sunny South", "I Ain't Going To Give Nobody None Of My Jelly Roll", and "Sweet Mama (Papa's Getting Mad).

Here are the lyrics, now all I need is the chords.

Take Your Tomorrow and Give Me Today
(Jimmy Johnson, Andy Razaf)
As Sung by Emmett Miller

Guitar picking
Spoken: Dogone Eddie, you is killing me.
Guitar picking

Why Should I wait for happiness?
I've grown impatient more or less.
I cannot wait somehow.
Show me that bluebird now.

Chorus:

Take your tomorrow,
And give me today.
For your tomorrow,
Is too far away.
At every dawning,
I've waited in vain.
I find each morning,
Brings only rain.
How can I borrow tomorrow today.
With clouds around me all heavy and grey. oooh doh
What tomorrow may bring,
Don't mean a thing.
That's why I say.
Take your tomorrow,
And give me today.

Repeat chorus.

the chords shifted a bit when i posted, but i'm sure you can figure it out if you imagine each chord a little to the right, or listen to the song to find the changes.
