                         "Bummer In The Summer"
                              (Arthur Lee)


	(F)     D    C/G  D     C/G  D   F   D
	 /      /   /   /   /      /   /   /   /

	(acoustic guitar, 2X; continue into verse):

	 F               F
	 v       v       v       v

Verse 1:

	          F                       F
	Well I remember when you used to look so good
	       F                     F                  F   F   F   F
	And I did everything that I possibly could for you
	            F               F
	We used to ride around all over town
	             F                    F                F   F   F   F
	But they're puttin' you down for bein' around with me
	            D               C/G  D
	But you can go ahead if you want to
	  C/G      D       F         D   F   F   F   F
	'Cause I ain't got no papers on you

Verse 2:

	In the middle of the summer I had a job bein' a plumber
	Just to pass till the fall it was you I wanna ball all day
	Ah-we were walkin' along, honey, hand in hand
	I'm a-thinkin' of you, mama, when you're thinkin' of another man
	But you can go ahead if you want to
	'Cause I ain't got no papers on you
	(No, I don't   I ain't got no papers on myself)

Break ("Bo Diddley" beat):

	F    F   F    F   F    F   F    F
	/ / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /

[repeat intro]

	(guitar solo over D-C intro riff [8X])

Verse 3:

	All alone on the bone when I didn't have a home
	When I saw the way I was and I knew where I was supposed to be
	I was twitchin' so I turned and it's really hard to learn
	That everyone I saw was just another part of me
	But you can go ahead if you want to
	'Cause nobody's got no papers on you
	(No, babe, it's just a falsehood)

[repeat break]

[repeat intro; end cold on D]
