along to the original, transpose this tab -2 and then use a capo on the 1st fret to 
match the recording.

[Verse]
Em
  Nobody on the road, nobody on the beach
C
  I feel it in the air, the summer's out of reach 
D
Empty lake, empty streets, the sun goes down alone 
C
 I'm drivin' by your house, though I know you're not home 


[Chorus]
G
  But I can see you
D
  Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
D                                       C
  You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby
G                       D
  And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong 
D                 C
After the boys of summer have gone

[Verse]
Em
  I never will forget those nights, I wonder if it was a dream 
C
  Remember how you made me crazy? remember how I made you scream 
D
  Now I don't understand what happened to our love 
C
 But babe, I'm gonna get you back, I'm gonna show you what I'm made of


[Chorus]
G
  I can see you
D                               
 Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
D                                       C
  I see you walkin' real slow and you're smilin' at everyone
G                   D
  I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
D                 C
After the boys of summer have gone

[Verse]
Em
  Out on the road today, I saw a Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac
C
 A little voice Inside my head said, Don't look back. You can never look back
D  
 I thought I knew what love was; what did I know? 
C
 Those days are gone forever, I should just let them go but


[Chorus]
G
  But I can see you
D
  Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
D                                C
  You got top pulled down and the radio on, baby
G                       D
  And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong 
D                 C
After the boys of summer have gone 



[Chorus]
G
  I can see you
D                               
 Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
D                                        C
 You got that hair slicked back and those Wayfarers on, baby
G                   D
  I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
D                  C
 After the boys of summer have gone

Sorry, but the verse chords are off: too many changes.

No Am in the chorus, the D holds until the C chord in the second and 4th lines.
