Judy Collins - In The Heat Of The Summer

CAPO: 1st Fret

Am  G  Am  G  Am  G  Am  G  Am

[Verse 1]
       G           Am
In the heat of the summer
C                       E
When the pavements were burning
    Am        G        E              Am
The soul of a city was ravaged in the night
          G            Am      G  Am  G  Am
After the city sun was setting

[Verse 2]
           G            Am
Now no one knows how it started
C                    E
why the windows were shattered
    Am          G     E               Am
But deep in the dark, someone set the spark
            G         Am       G  Am  G  Am
And then it no longer mattered

[Verse 3]
         G                 Am
Down the streets they were rumbling
C                    E
All the tempers were raging
    Am         G             E            Am
Oh, where, oh, where are the white silver tongues
              G             Am        G  Am  G  Am
Who forgot to listen to the warnings?

[Verse 4]
       G           Am
On and on come the angry
C                   E
No longer following reason
    Am      G      E               Am
And all the stores were the target now
                     G             Am     G  Am  G  Am
Where just the other day they were buying

[Verse 5]
               G             Am
Drunk with the memory of the ghetto
C                          E
Drunk with the lure of the looting
       Am             G        E                  Am
And the memory of the uniforms shoving with their sticks
                 G           Am       G  Am  G  Am
Asking, "Are you looking for trouble?"

[Verse 6]
         G               Am
"No, no, no," moaned the mayor
C                    E
"It's not the way of the order
    Am          G              E         Am
"Oh stay in your homes, please leave us alone
                  G           Am       G  Am  G  Am
"We'll be glad to talk in the morning"

[Verse 7]
                G                 Am
"For shame, for shame," wrote the papers
C                      E
"Why the hurry to your hunger?
 Am               G       E              Am
"Now the rubble's resting on your broken streets
                      G          Am       G  Am  G  Am
"So you see what your rage has unravelled"

[Verse 8]
           G          Am
Barricades sadly were rising
C                   E
Bricks were heavily flying
        Am          G              E          Am
And the loudspeaker drowned like a whispering sound
                     G        Am      G  Am  G  Am
when compared to the angered emotions

[Verse 9]
             G        Am
And when the fury was over
C                               E
And the shame was replacing the anger
   Am        G          E                  Am
So wrong, so wrong, but we've been down so long
              G             Am
And we had to make somebody listen
       G           Am     G  Am  G  Am
In the heat of the summer
