             G                                          D
Oh, when the sun beats down and burns the tar up on the roof.
                                                              G
And your shoes get so hot, you wish your tired feet were fire-proof.
          C                      G
Under the Boardwalk, down by the sea
                       D                 G
On a blanket with my baby, is where I'll be.

           Em
(Under the boardwalk) Out of the sun.
           D
(Under the boardwalk) We'll be having some fun.
           Em
(Under the boardwalk) People walking above.
           D                                             Em
(Under the boardwalk) We'll be falling in love under the boardwalk, boardwalk.

         G                                           D
From the palms you hear the happy sounds of the carousel,
                                                        G
You can almost taste the hot dogs and french fries they sell.
          C                      G
Under the boardwalk, down by the sea
                       D                 G
on a blanket with my baby, is where I'll be.

           Em
(Under the boardwalk) Out of the sun.
           D
(Under the boardwalk) We'll be having some fun.
           Em
(Under the boardwalk) People walking above.
           D                                             Em
(Under the boardwalk) We'll be falling in love under the boardwalk, boardwalk.
