Thread Name: Lyr/chords: Summertime (Gershwin)
Subject: RE: Summertime
Those are the complete lyrics. When I do it, I usually sing the first verse again after the second verse and a break. Or sometimes I combine the first two to make a third:
There is a wonderful version (from which I derived mine) by Doc Watson. It's on one of his old albums, but was recently redone even better maybe on the "Doc and Dawg" CD with David Grisman. Another great version is the one by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong on their album "Porgy and Bess"

Good luck,
Chet W.
