[Intro]

Em C D C


[Verse 1] 

Em                                          
   Nobody on the road, nobody on the beach.
 C                                                
   I feel it in the air, the summer's out of reach.
   D                                                     
   Empty lake, empty streets, the sun goes down alone.  
 C
   I'm driving by your house, though I know your not home.


[Chorus]

G                 D
But I can see you, your brown skin shining in the sun.
                                     C 
You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby.
G                 D
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong 
                  C
After the boys of summer have gone.


[Verse 2]  (The same as verse 1)

Em   
I never will forget those nights.
C       
I wonder if it was a dream.
 D         
Remember how you made me crazy,
 C
Remember how I made you scream.

Em 
Now I don't understand what
C       
Happened to our love.
D    
But, baby, when I get you back,
 C
I'm gonna show you what I'm made of.


[Chorus]

G                 D
But I can see you, your brown skin shining in the sun.
                                     C 
You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby.
G                 D
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong 
                  C
After the boys of summer have gone.


[Bridge]

Em C C D C C D A C D C Em C D C


[Verse 3]  (Also the same as verse 1)

Em   
Out on the road today I saw a Black Flag
C       
Sticker on a Cadillac.
D   
A little voice inside my head said:
C 
"Don't look back, you can never look back."

Em   
I thought I knew what love was.
C   
What did I know?
D 
Those days are gone forever.
C   
I should just let them go, but


[Chorus] x2

G                 D
But I can see you, your brown skin shining in the sun.
                                     C 
You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby.
G                 D
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong 
                  C
After the boys of summer have gone.

This is suppose to be tuned half a step down to play along with the song. In case I forgot.

The Don Henley version is in standard tuning. I think you were thinking of the Ataris' cover when you wrote this as you also included the altered lyric "I saw a BLACK FLAG sticker on a Cadillac" instead of the original "I saw a DEAD HEAD sticker on a Cadillac".
