[Intro]

e|------|---|-----------|---|----------|---|----------|---|---P-P--------------|
B|------|---|-----------|---|----------|---|-8--------|---|-10-8-7---8---------|
G|-7/9~-|---|-----7-----|---|-----7----|---|---9-7-9~-|---|--------7---9-7-7/9-|
D|------|---|-7/9---9~--|---|-7/9---9~-|---|----------|---|--------------------|
A|------|---|-----------|---|----------|---|----------|---|--------------------|
E|------|---|-----------|---|----------|---|----------|---|--------------------|

e|----------|
B|-12-10~---|
G|----------|
D|----------|
A|----------|
E|----------|


  The funky little riff during the verses goes something like this:
  (Clean with a little echo)
e|---------------------------|
B|--------------------------.| Palm mute it and repeat for the length of
G|----------------------H----| the verse (8 times I think)
D|-----9-9-7-7-9-X-9-7-7-9--.|
A|-7-7-----------------------|
E|---------------------------|


[Chorus]

  Here's how I play the chords:  (A little distortion & chorus)
   G   C   D
e|-3---3---2-|
B|-3---3---3-|  I won't bother putting this part in tab,
G|-O---O---2-|  just strum each chord where it says to
D|-O---2---O-|  and then arpeggiate the notes of the chord
A|-X---3-----|  letting the notes ring.
E|-3---------|

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


  The second verse is basically the same as the first, but it has this funkey
  lick thrown in at the end:
  (Distorted)
e|-----------------12~~~--|
B|-/--/8------10^F~~~~~~--|
G|-/9-(9)-9-7-------------|
D|------------------------|
A|------------------------|
E|------------------------|

Then there's the second Chorus... same chords as the first

  Then there's the Bridge:
  (Clean with a little echo)
e|------------------------------------|
B|----------------P------------------.| This is repeated thorught
G|-9-9-7-7-------9-7----9--7----------| the bridge.
D|---------10-10-----10-------10-10--.|
A|------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------|
(Palm Muted)

Here's the riffs for the part after the bridge:

   > P            >
e|-10-7------||---P-----||-----H--P-----------------|--------------------------|
B|------10~~-||-12-10~~-||-10-8-10-8----H-P---------|(8)----8---8-10-10/12-(8)-|
G|-----------||---------||-----------9-7-9-7---7/9~-|-9-9-9---9------------9-9~|
D|-----------||---------||-------------------9------|--------------------------|
A|-----------||---------||--------------------------|--------------------------|
E|-----------||---------||--------------------------|--------------------------|

Then there's the outro:

        (Repeat 7 times)
e|-------------------------|-------------------------------------|
B|-12~-10~-12~-8~----8~---.|--H--8---H--8--H------------8-7-8~~--|
G|----------------7~-------|-7-9----7-9---7-9-9-7-9-9/11---------|
D|------------------------.|-------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------|-------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------|-------------------------------------|

And that's about all of it.

   There's some interesting guitar stuff on all the songs on this CD,
   no shredding, or incredible chops, but Mike Campbell & Danny Kortchmar
   definitely have STYLE!!

   If you don't have this CD (Building The Perfect Beast),
   BUY IT!!! It's an awesome CD...All She Wants to Do is Dance,
                                  Sunset Grill,
                                  Drivin' With Your Eyes Closed,
                                  and of course this song are
                                  all AWESOME tunes!!!

everything sounds good, just the first part of the intro sounds a little too high

guitar should be tuned down one half step to play with record.

live, song is usually played down another half step. (one whole step from tab, in F)
