~Title:                 REELIN' IN THE YEARS                    (Steely Dan)


              D               A/C#            Bm7                 A
                Your ever lastin' summer, you can see it fadin' fast,
              D                       A/C#            Bm7                 A
                So you grab a piece of somethin' that you think is gonna last.
      C#/E                          C/Eb          B/D           A/C#
        Well, you wouldn't even know a diamond if you held it in your hand;
              D                     A/C#            Bm7            A
                The things you think are precious I can't understand.

This is what I dug out from Nevada. The first two lines are fine...

But C#/E   ,  C/Eb    etc for the third and fourth lines  ?????

If you try these chords, they sound pretty weird. C# with an E bass ?

If you try E with a C# bass it's almost right though I prefer these chorts :

    Em7                    B/D#             Dm7                A/C#
you wouldn't even know  a diamond  if  you held  it  in your  hand

Probably it was a slip up when it was typed in, cos' everything except this
line is Ok.

Chord shapes :

   EADGBE     EADGBE    EADGBE    EADGBE
   x79787     x6987x    x57565    x4765x

    Em7        B/D#       Dm7      A/C#

        CHORUS: Are you reelin' in the years, stowin away the time?
          |                              Gmaj9                         A

                You been tellin' me you're a genius since you were seventeen;
              D               A/C#               Bm7                        A
                In all the time I've known you I still don't know what you mean.
              C#/E                   C/Eb          B/D              A/C#
                The weekend at the college didn't turn out like you planned;
              D                 A/C#              Bm7           A
                The things that pass for knowledge I can't understand.

                CHORUS


              D                     A/C#         Bm7            A
                I've spent a lit of money and I spent a lot of time;
              D                     A/C#      Bm7                A
                The trip we made to Hollywood is etched upon my mind.
              C#/E                   C/Eb                B/D          A/C#
                After all the things we've done and seen you find another man;
              D                      A/C#          Bm7         A
                The things you think are useless I can't understand.


                CHORUS

Rightyo then your struggling with that third line, what i have come up with were they say "so you would.....etc is. using bar chords
G F# F A
