This song appears on Baysides Acoustic album, and I really wanted to know how to play
it so I looked at the Smoking Popes Tab for it. It was in a different  key so I
transposed it for anyone else who wants to learn it.


A           A/Ab
Butter on a summer day
When she's around
I was on the tracks
When the gate came down
A            A/Ab
Suddenly I recognized
F#                         F#/Ab         D     
Those bloodshot rearview mirror eyes as mine

F#m            E                D
  I heard that whistle call my name
F#m            E      D
  I almost drove away

          Am  Db
But Megan I 
       E               F#m                 B
had a feeling that you would be on that train
          D                 E
So I just waited there for you

A                 A/Ab
Caught a ride to another town
Where the air was clean
F#/Ab                 D
And the sun never goes down
A                  A/Ab
Everyone was standing in a line
F#                  F#/Ab      D
Between the landing and the stairs

F#m           E             D
  I heard somebody call my name
F#m           E             D
  I almost climbed the stairs
           Am Db
But Megan I
       E                 F#m             B    
had a feeling that someday you'd meet me there
          D                  E
So I just waited there for you

SOLO: Chorus Chords x2

A            A/Ab
Butter on a summer day
When I hear that name
F#/Ab                         D
It's a dream that never came true
A             A/Ab
Sat down on the tracks
F#                      F#/Ab            D
And waited for a train to take me back to you

F#m              E            D
  Somebody came and took my hand
F#m            E      D
  I finally had to go
            Am  Db   
But Megan I 
     E         F#m     B
just want you to know
          D                  E
That I waited as long as I could
A              A/Ab     F#
Butter on a summer day when she's around

It's not WAY off, but there are a few fundamental mistakes. Here's what I do to make it sound better when I play it; perhaps you could incorporate these into a later version or something.

I just hold A through "summer day," then change F# to F#m and hold that through "tracks"--I do that whenever one of the slashed chords comes up. It seems to work as well as doing one of those complicated ones would.

I omit the D at the end of the bridge, at "drove away," simply holding E through that.

At the beginning of the chorus, I change it to A then Dbm (as opposed to your Am and Db). I then make the B for "train" a Bm.

That's really it. With those changes, this tab would be ready for a five-star rating. :) Thank you.
