Summer(The First Time.)Bobby Goldsboro.
#18 in 1973.

B        A                  E 
It was a hot afternoon, the last day of June, 
         B         F#m     B F#m 
and  the sun was a demon. 
    A                       E 
The clouds were afraid, one ten in the shade, 
        B            F#m      B F#m 
and the pavement was steamin'. 

  A                     E 
I told Billy Ray in his red Chevrolet, 
         B             F#m      B F#m 
I needed time for some thinkin'. 
      A                      E 
I was just walking by when I looked in her eye, 
      B            F#m      B  F#m 
and I swore it was winkin'. 
D                             Bm 
She was thirty-one, and I was seventeen, 
C#m                                 F#m 
I knew nothing about love, she knew everything. 
    D                             Bm 
But I sat down beside her on that front porch swing, 
    C#7                                  F#m   B  
and wondered what the coming night would bring. 
    A                         E 
The sun closed her eyes as it climbed in the skies, 
       B          F#m     B F#m 
and it started to swelter. 
    A                       E 
The sweat trickled down the front of her gown, 
  B                F#m      B F#m 
I thought it would melt her. 

    A                        E 
She threw back her hair like I wasn't there, 
    B           F#m    B F#m 
she sipped on a Julep. 
    A                          E 
Her shoulders were bare, and I tried not to stare, 
       B             F#m       B F#m 
when I looked at her two lips. 

    D                                  Bm 
And when she looked at me, I heard her softly say, 
   C#m                                       F#m 
'I know you're young, you don't know what to do or say. 
    D                              Bm 
But stay with me until the sun has gone away, 
    C#7                         F#m   B F#m   B F#m   B 
and I will chase the boy in you away. 
F#m                          D 
And then she smiled, then we talked for a while, 
       C#m                      F# 
and we walked for a mile to the sea. 
   F#m                      D 
We sat on the sand, and the boy took her hand, 
       C#m                   F# 
but he saw the sun rise as a man. 
D  Bm  C#7  F#m (x2)  B  
    A                        E 
Ten years have gone by since I looked in her eyes, 
        B      F#m      B  F#m 
but the memory lingers. 
     A                      E 
I go back in my mind to the very first time, 
         B            F#m      B F#m 
feel the touch of her fingers. 

         A                  E 
It was a hot afternoon, the last day of June, 
        B         F#m      B  F#m 
and the sun was a demon... 

A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.
