There are two guitars in this song
The electric guitar you hear strumming in the verse
is playing something slightly different.

These are the chords that the acoustic 
is playing.

I used the lyrics from the version on Myles Kennedy's Myspace.
I don't know if they're different than the album.

Also, the song is played in 
Drop D tuning, but its not really necessary
if you want to play the song.

  D*     G     Am    D     A*
|-10-| |-3-| |-0-| |-2-| |-1-|
|-10-| |-3-| |-1-| |-3-| |-1-|
|-11-| |-4-| |-2-| |-2-| |-2-|
|-12-| |-5-| |-2-| |-0-| |---|
|----| |---| |---| |---| |---|
|----| |---| |---| |---| |---|

Intro:
If you are playing in standard EADGBe, the studio version will look like this:

  D         Am        G         D
E|---0h2-2-|-0---0---|-2-0-----|---------|
B|-3-------|---3-1-3-|-------3-|-0-3---3-|
G|---------|---------|-----0---|-----2---|
D|-------0-|---------|---------|-----0---|
A|---------|-----0---|---------|---------|
E|---------|---------|-----3---|---------|

*If you are playing with the low E dropped to D, just play that low G note in the 5th fret.

  D        
Flowers placed
        Am
At the foot of the grave
       G              D
Of the one we lost forever


 D
Jesus please
         Am
Let her soul rest in peace
          G                    D
And make way a new angel's in heaven


       D          Am
Summergirl went away
       G             D 
Everything has been dying
       D          Am
Summergirl went away
         G            D
And the sun doesn't shine


D
All alone
        Am
In the house we called home
         G                       D
And the walls still echo of her laughter


       D 
We'd dream of a world
      Am
Far away we'll never know
           G                     D
Since she left i don't dream anymore....


       D          Am
Summergirl went away
       G             D 
Everything has been dying
       D          Am
Summergirl went away
         G            D
And the sun doesn't shine

Bridge:
(D,Am,G,D) x2

Then you play this sequence:

   C9              G               D               D             C9              G
e|-3-3-3-3-3-3---|-3-3-3---------|---0-----------|---0---------|-3-3-3-3-3-3---|-3-3-3-3-3-3---|

G|-0-0-0-0-0-0---|-0-0-0---------|---2-----------|---2---------|-0-0-0-0-0-0---|-0-0-0-0-0-0---|

D|---------------|-5-5-5-4-5-7/0-|-0-0---4-5-7/0-|-0-0---------|---------------|-5-5-5-5-5-5---|
   U D U * * *     U D U           D U             D U           D D U U D U     D D U U D U

* Focus on the lower notes, but you can "accidentally" hit the strings below to get the effect.
       D          Am
Summergirl went away
       G             D 
Everything has been dying
       D          Am
Summergirl went away
         G                          D*   G   D*
And the sun and the sun doesn't shiii---------ne
    D*        
no more, yeah,
 G
ye---ah
                   D*
oh the sun don't shine no more
                 G             A*
every since you went away, oh yeah  
  

End on D
