Guitar chords

Yellow Balloon was one of the first fake bubblegum groups created specifically
to record & release a song. In this instance it was for "Yellow Balloon", a cut
from Jan & Dean's 'concept' LP "Save For A chord diagramA augmentedA Rainy Day" (all the songs had
something
to do with rain). Don Grady (of "My Three Sons" fame) was a member of the
touring version of Yellow Balloon.
