set tempo
3rd fret
SONG: Summer in the City by Lovin' Spoonful
TAB:  niuguitarman

capo III -- therefore, when you play an Am chord, a Cm chord is sounded.

[verse 1:]
Am          Am/G                D/F#                    F         E
  Hot town, summer in the city; back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
Am           Am/G             D/F#                 F             E
  Been down, isn't it a pity; doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
E              E7
  All around, people looking half dead
Am                       A
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head

D                     G
  But at night it's a different world
D            G
  Go out and find a girl
D                      G
  Come-on come-on and dance all night
D                        G
  Despite the heat it'll be alright
    Bm              E
And babe, don't you know it's a pity
         Bm         E
That the days can't be like the nights
       Bm             E
In the summer, in the city
       Bm             E
In the summer, in the city

[verse 2:]
Cool town, evening in the city; Dressing so fine and looking so pretty
Cool cat, looking for a kitty; Gonna look in every corner of the city
Till I'm wheezing like a bus stop
Running up the stairs, gonna meet you on the rooftop

3rd fret seems right for me.., maybe you got another version of the song? This is the lovin' spoonful version, I know at least one other version (dunno who did that). I got the lovin' spoonful one and capo on 3rd is correct with that one.

i've seen a video of lovin' spoonful playing this song. you can see yanovsky playing guitar with a capo on the third
fret... just to clear that up. i didn't see this until the other day, because i thought maybe musicman6107 may have been
correct, but it just didn't sound right to me. so, i looked up a video and i am correct.

I want to post or [tab]
