(Verse 1)
C
Dictated to by empty streets,
                 Am
Chain stores and big machines
                       G
The snow falls hard on soft debris
                           F
And I know this town don't envy me
                        C
And the locals all seem nice enough
                         Am
But they cross streets I dare not walk
                     G
I'll drive the extra couple of blocks
                   F
And stop when I am told to stop


(Chorus)
    C
And everyone in this shitty bar
        F
Is just trying to sink their teeth into everybody else
C                                                          F
Give me East London summer, give me North Melbourne summer


(Verse 2)
C
Nothing makes you feel more alive
           Am
Than being surrounded by things that have recently died
            G
And on this goddamn bitter cold late November night
    F
The kids put on their coats to go see the Christmas lights
C
Urban undeveloped wastelands of Michigan
     Am
Sleet falls on my jacket teeth are chattering again
        G
And the locals all drink and love, fight when they have drunk too much
    F
The kids look like they grew up knowing how to take a punch
Am                      G                    F
And the month old front pages from local newspapers dance
       Am                      G            F
On the lonely winds around the empty lobbies of once grand buildings


(Chorus)
    C
And everyone in this shitty bar
        F
Is just trying to sink their teeth into everybody else
        C                                                  F
Give me East London summer, give me North Melbourne summer
C
Let's be anything, let's be lovers, we'll take care of one another
          F
Live like people I looked up to in the time when I was happier
        C                                                  F
Give me East London summer, give me North Melbourne summer


(Bridge)
           G                F
And now I'm smoking weed in New York City
          G                          F
In the land of happy-ever-afters and dreams come true
       G                     F                G
I pass out piss drunk on the floor of a motel room
                      F                  Em
Wake up shivering and thinking about you
               F
And I'm tired
       Em          F    G
I'm so tired


(Chorus)
    C
And everyone in this shitty bar
         F
Is still trying to sink their teeth into everybody else
        C                                                   F
Give me East London summer, give me North Melbourne summer
         C
Let's be anything, let's be lovers, we'll take shots at one another
              F
Live like people I looked up to in the time when I was happier
        C                                                  F
Give me East London summer, give me North Melbourne summer
