G Em7 C Cm       Em/G Am Cm G

[Verse 1]
Em  Emmaj7  Em7  Em6                 Em/B
Su    -     mmer days, where did you go
       C7          B7
You've let me down so bad
Em      Emmaj7  Em7 Em6              Em6/B
Clouds   fill   the sky, gone is the dream
   C7            B7
My happy hunting ground
      Em     G/D          Am(6)             Em
Wild buffalo played and I never saw a rainy day
       C7                B7-9              Em    Am       
But it looks like summer days ain't coming back

[Verse 2]
Em            Em6   Em/B
March, April, May, June and July
    C7            B7-9   
You took me for a fall
Em              
  Big chief he lie
Em7                Em6      C7                B7    
   Cold wind blows cool, so cold to make you die
Em                     G/D       Am(6)             Em
Mountain breeze, ocean bay and I never saw a rainy day
       C7                     B7-9               Em    Am 
But it looks like them summer days ain't comming back

 E E/G# E/B E7/D   G#m  B 
Adios            amigos
Am             E             Am                
  What can you do, when your dream world is gone
         Ab7                C#m  Baug        B  E5 Em  Em/G G Am Cm
And your friends and lovers too, no no no no no no no

[Verse 3]
Em          Em6              Em/B
West Winter Street under the ground
    C7                 B7-9
The air that makes you choke
Em        Em6                  Em/B
Towers of concrete, hellish go-round
     C7            B7
Were there when I awoke 
     Em           G/D
City sky, pouring down with rain
         Am(6)                  Em
That can never hope to ease the pain
        C7               B7-9              Em   Am
And it looks like summer days ain't coming back

[Chorus]
  E E/G# E/B E7/D    G#m  B Am  
Laredo            Tornado
 E E/G# E/B E7/D   G#m  B Bbdim7 F#7
Adios            amigos
  
  E E/G# E/B E7/D    G#m  B Am
