Intro: Am Dm Am Dm Am 

       Dm          Am
In the heat of the summer
G                       E
When the pavements were burning
    Am        G        Am 
The soul of a city was ravaged in the night
          Dm           Am
After the city sun was sinkin'

Am         Dm           Am
Now no one knows how it started
G                    E
why the windows were shattered
Am          G         Am              
But deep in the dark, someone set the spark
           Dm         Am 
And then it no longer mattered.

Am       Dm                Am
Down the streets they were rumbling
G                    E
All the tempers were ragin
Am          G            Am
Oh, where, oh, where are the white silver tongues
              Dm            Am
Who forgot to listen to the warnings?

Am     Dm          Am
On and On come the angry 
G                   E
No longer following reason
Am      G               Am 
And all the stores were the target now
               Dm                  Am
Where just the other day they were buyin

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

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

Am              Dm                Am
"For shame, for shame," wrote the papers.
G                      E
"Why the hurry to your hunger?
Am           G            Am     
"Now the rubble's resting on your broken streets
                 Dm              Am
"So you see what your rage has unraveled."

Am        Dm         Am
Baricades sadly were risin 
G                   E
Bricks were heavily flyin 
Am          G                    Am
And the loudspeaker drowned like a whisperin' sound
              Dm             Am
when compared to the angered emotions   

Am           Dm       Am
And when the fury was over
G                               E
And the Shame was replacing the anger.
Am        G             Am    
So wrong, so wrong, but we've been down so long
           Dm               Am
And we had to make somebody listen
       Dm          Am        Dm Am Dm Am
In the heat of the summer......
