Abm                 Gb/Bb 
Some summers in the evening
      B  Gb/Db  B/D#  E | E (Held over from last bar) (add some maj 7 and 9 for color) 
after six or so
Abm         Gb/Bb           
I walk on down the hill
Gb/Ab       Ab/Bb      
  and maybe buy a beer
E               Gb        
  I think about my friends
      B  Gb/Db  B/D#  E | E (Held over from last bar) (add some maj 7 and 9 for color) 
sometimes I wish they lived out here
          Dbm7     Gb      |  B (change between a B and E/B off and on)
but they wouldn't dig this town
        E        B/D#   |    Gb/Ab  Ab/Bb
no they wouldn't dig this town

CHORUS

Abm                Gb/Bb 
  Alice the world is full of ugly things that 
      B  Gb/Db  B/D#  E | E (Held over from last bar) (add some maj 7 and 9 for color)
you can't change
Abm            Gb/Bb    
  pretend it's not that way
Gb/Ab       Ab/Bb   
  that's my idea of faith
E                    F#
  you can blow it off and say there's 
B  Gb/Db  B/D#  E | E (Held over from last bar) (add some maj 7 and 9 for color) 
good in nearly everyone
      Dbm7     Gb      |  B (change between A B and E/B off and on)
just give them all a chance
E        B/D#   |    Gb/Ab  Ab/Bb

Bridge: I'll try to write down the notes of the solo. 
Keep in mind I'm not writing repeated notes twice or more.
It's the same D/E chord throughout just keep comping it through out.

        1   2   3   4   |1   2   3   4   |1   2   3   4   |1   2   3   4   |
Chords: D/E             
Notes:   F#--E--B--A      G# A B       G#  F#--E--B--A      G# A B       F#

C/G                   | Gmaj7
  No it didn't work out
C/D                   
  no it didn't work out 
           Gmaj7
the way we thought it would
                  C/D   
no it didn't work out
            Gmaj7
an arranged marriage
               E/F#
is not so good

Interlude: Same chords as the verse
Abm                 Gb/Bb 
B  Gb/Db  B/D#  E | E (Held over from last bar) (add some maj 7 and 9 for color) 
Abm                 Gb/Bb 
B  Gb/Db  B/D#  E | E (Held over from last bar) (add some maj 7 and 9 for color)

Abm                 Gb/Bb 
   Thank God it's you
              B  Gb/Db  B/D#  E | E (Held over from last bar) (add some maj 7 and 9 for color)
you know your timing is impeccable
Abm          Gb/Bb
   I'm not fooling you
Gb/Ab          Ab/Bb       
  I don't know what to do
E                 F#(Gb)
  some dude just knocked me cold
    B  Gb/Db  B/D#  E | E (Held over from last bar) (add some maj 7 and 9 for color)
and left me on the sidewalk
     Dbm7 Gb    | B (change between A B and E/B off and on)
took everything I had
E    B/D#|    Gb/Ab  Ab/Bb
everything I       had
