Lyrics

Summer

 

Intro

D C9 G/B G/Bb x2

 

Verse 1

D C9

Leaves are changing, they’re turning brown

G/B gm/Bb

It’s got my mind a wondering, will she come around?

D C9

But when she left me, she didn’t say goodbye

G/B gm/Bb

And like the leaves are falling, the tears are rolling from my eyes Chorus

 

GAD
I’m thinking about Summer in the middle of the fall

GAD

Those hot Summer nights I can recall

G A bm

But Summer’s gone and I’m headed for a fall

CG

She was my world, not anymore

AD

I’m thinking about Summer in the middle of the fall

Intro chords

 

Verse 2


Today I took her flowers, I knew she wouldn’t mind

Twelve long stem roses, they were her favorite kind

I said I love you, and got down on my knee
I said Lord you were mistaken, you should have taken me

Chorus

Bridge

bmG D

I feel the heat that Summer brought me,

bm G A

But now a chill is moving in

bm G D

It takes me back to that moment

EA

When I thought Summer would never end

Chorus
