In this lesson, we'll put the key of G to work by learning to play the song 'Darling Destination'.

Remember, you'll find the lyrics and chords under the 'Image' tab below the video, and you can print them out by going to the 'Print Lesson' tab.

First we will preview the song structure.

Then I will play it for you, so you can hear where we are headed.

And finally, we'll do a full play-along with the band!

You will probably want to print out the music for this so you can follow along.

And don't worry if it takes a while before you can keep up with the whole song. That can be a big challenge!

Just remember, you can always practice it on your own, at a much slowed-down pace.
Practice each section on its own. Break it into smaller bits.

And, when you are playing along with me, remember that if you make a mistake or get lost, just relax, hang back, and wait for a good place to jump in and join me again.

Have fun with this!

DARLING DESTINATION (lyrics)

VERSE 1:
If I had to tell the truth I would admit it
That I had lost my way and I just didn’t get it
Sometimes it only takes an outside pair of eyes
To call you on your so-called paradise

VERSE 2:
You showed up when and where I least expected
To the point where holy intervention was suspected
Some people are just meant to find each other
Fate won’t leave them alone till they are lovers

CHORUS:
Now I see the city lights
They own the sky at night
And I’ll be with you tonight
My darling destination
My darling destination
My darling destination

VERSE 3:
I'm driving 13 miles an hour above the limit
But if there's a slow lane,
I'm the only sucker in it
Sometimes the neverending highway looks deceptive
Might as well be a thousand miles to the next exit

Now I see the city lights
They own the sky at night
And I’ll be with you tonight
My darling destination
My darling destination
My darling destination
