1st Verse:
G(2nd octave)                Bm7/F#
Remember last summer when we had the chance
   Am7/E                 Am/D
to find each other start making romance
       G(2nd octave)          Bm7/F#
But it didn't come off so you found another
            Am7/E                Am/D
Without one hand of a clock what good is the other

1st Chorus:
    Cadd13  C       Cadd13       C         Gsus4  G  G7(#5) *
And I can't find no true love oh baby it's so hard
      Cadd13       C              Cadd13    C         Am/D  D6
and I still think about you every time I'm ridin' in my car
* then add A then B as in: xx3443, xxx445, xxx447

2nd Verse...

2nd Chorus ;end on G instead of Am/D & D6

Bridge:      Am               Cm             D         G
Aww when I'm home alone I can think of other things to do
    Am                 Cm      D        A                D
but when I'm rollin in forward motion I think about only you

3rd Verse...

repeat 1st chorus; end on D, not D6

Solo:         bend&release
E: - - - - -(7b8r7)- - - - slide - - - - - - - - - - - -
B: - - 7 8 10- - - - -7 8 10/12 10 - - 7 8 10/12 7/8 - -
G: 7 9 - - - - - - 7 9 - - - - - - 7 9 - - - - - - - 7/9

repeat 1st chorus
repeat intro riff

Notes: Arranged by NRBQ with contrasting chords for electric clavinet. To
reconcile for solo guitar, add D chord at last beat of verse, and instead
of Cadd13 to C in the chorus, try C6add9 (8x7755) to Cadd13 (875555). A
simplified  arrangement for solo guitar accompaniment in the 1st octave
would be: Verse- G, Bm, Am7, Am/D (xx0210), G, Bm, Am7, Am/D to D (on last
 beat), Chorus- C6add9 (x3x230), C, etc.
