Intro: C, C

C             '            '           '
Yellow is the colour of my true love's hair
       F        '       C     '
In the mornin', when we rise
       F        '       C     '
In the mornin', when we rise
           G    '           F    '
That's the time, that's the time
           C    '
I love the best

Blue is the colour of the sky-yy
In the mornin', when we rise
In the mornin', when we rise
That's the time, that's the time
I love the best

Green's the colour of the sparklin' corn
In the mornin', when we rise
In the mornin', when we rise
That's the time, that's the time
I love the best

Mellow is the feelin' that I get
When I see her, m-mmm
When I see her, uh huh
That's the time, that's the time
I love the best

And Darryl speaks like sunshine 
Sifting through the leaves.
Won't you listen while he sings
Won't you listen while he sings.
He sings of diamonds and Crimson cokes
That you can have

And yellow is the colour of my true love's hair
In the mornin' when we rise,
In the mornin' when we rise,
That's the time, yes that's the time,
I love the best.

Freedom is a word I rarely use
Without thinkin', mm hmm,
Without thinkin', mm hmm,
Of the time, yes of the time
When I've been loved.
