Intro:
  D|C|D|C

*There are no actual chords in the verses, but I put some chords together that sound
good just so the rythm guitarist has somethin to do.

D                   C
Nobody on the road

                     D
nobody on the beach

                     C
I feel it in the air

                          D
the summer's out of reach

C
Empty lake,


empty streets,

                         D
the sun goes down alone

C
I'm drivin' by your house

                            G
Though I know you're not home


But I can see you-

D                                  D
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun


You got your hair combed back and your

C                   G
sunglasses on, baby

                     D
And I can tell you my love for you

                    D
will still be strong after the boys of

 C
summer have gone

D                                 C
I never will forget those nights

                           D
I wonder if it was a dream

                                 C
Remember how you made me crazy?

                                D
Remember how I made you scream?


Now I don't understand what's happened

            C
to our love,


But baby when I get you back

                                    G
I'm gonna show you what I'm made of


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

BRIDGE:
   C|C|C|D|C|D

D
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,

                  C
What did I know?


Those days are gone forever


I should just let them go but-

G
I can see you-

D                                  D
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun

                                     C
You got that top pulled down and that 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

G
I can see you-

D
Your brown skin shining in the sun

D
You got that hair slicked back and

        C
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

Outro:                Fade out...
