Credit to niuguitarman for the chords to the original, I've merely transposed it and added in the extra bits/key changes from Cocker's version. You could play it as Am with a capo on the 5th fret if you so wished, transpose it 5 steps down using controls if applicable. [Intro] Dm | A# (repeat) [verse 1:] Dm Dm/C G/B A# A Hot town, summer in the city; back of my neck getting dirty and gritty Dm Dm/C G/B A# A Been down, isn't it a pity; doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city A A7 All around, people looking half dead Dm D Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head [chorus:] G C But at night it's a different world G C Go out and find a girl G C Come-on come-on and dance all night G C Despite the heat it'll be alright Em A And babe, don't you know it's a pity Em A That the days can't be like the nights Em A In the summer, in the city Em A In the summer, in the city [Link] Dm | A# (repeat) [verse 2:] Cool town, evening in the city; Dressing so fine and looking so pretty Cool cat, looking for a kitty; Gonna look in every corner of the city Till I'm wheezing like a bus stop Running up the stairs, gonna meet you on the rooftop [chorus] [Link] [Instrumental break] Chords as verse [chorus] [Link to outro] F#m | B (repeat) [Outro] (Verse but up a tone) Em | Em/C | A/C# | C B |
