Theme tune from the world's longest running comedy series. I have included three
lyric versions (same chords). The first were written by Roy Clarke the original creator of 
the series, the second version written by Bill Owen (Compo) and the third version written 
for Compo's funeral after Bill Owen passed away in 1999.

Tabbed from a youtube video - capo on 3, key = D# 

Intro - C F G C

Verse 1
C             F
The colour of summer's gone
   G                C
Of golden days when I was young
                      F
Of girls who came but soon moved on
   G            C 
Is in my summer wine

Verse 2
C               F
The perfumes of earth and vine
   G                C 
Of meadows when the rain has gone
                    F 
Of women with their finery on
   G            C
Is in my summer wine

Bridge
    Am       Em        Dm         G
The memories I can see here in my cup
   Cm               Bb
Of sweet short days bitter days
Dm            G
Now all drunk up

Verse 3
    C            F  
The taste of the life that slips
     G                  C 
From day to day through fingers blind
                   F 
The honey from the woman's lips
   G            C
Is in my summer wine 


Bill Owen's (Compo)lyrics

Verse 1
C               F
The last of the summer wine
    G                C
The sweet bouquet of memories
                F
Of you and I as time goes by
  G              C             
I still remember these

Verse 2
C               F
The last of the summer wine
     G               C
When passing shadows still recur
                  F
Of golden days so young in love
    G                 C                
And that's the way we were

Bridge
   Am                Em               Dm        G
We had our dreams to change the world as people will
    Cm              Bb
But now we're known as the folk
    Dm          G
Who live on the hill

Verse 3
    C           F
The last of the summer wine
  G              C
A vintage love a vintage brew
                     F
And now my love this toast I give
G                   C
Thank you for being you 

Compo's funeral lyrics

Verse 1
C              F
Now all of his summer's gone 
      G                C
Those urgent days when he was young 
                         F
Those girls he loved but soon moved on
   G                C
To drink his summer wine

Verse 2
C               F
Now perfumes of earth and vine 
   G                C
Of meadows when the rain has gone
                         F 
These friends with their black armbands on
  G               C 
Salute his summer wine 

Bridge
    Am          Em         Dm         G
The memories he left to me here in my cup
   Cm               Bb
Of sweet short days bitter days
Dm            G 
Now all drunk up

Verse 3
    C               F
The fullness of the life that slipped
    G             C 
The other day all mortal pain 
                       F
Free now to roam fresh hills and lanes 
    G             C
And taste eternal wine
