This is my first chording/tabbing, made because I couldn't find a good one anywhere.

Summer Kisses, Winter Tears
as sung by Elvis Presley

Capo to 3rd fret for original key (A#, I believe)
*((Note, the tabs are not exact, they just enhance the sound of a solo guitar, in my opinion))*

Intro:      Am (strum a bit throughout)
e-----------0|----|-----------0|------|
B-----------1|----|-----------1|------|
G-----------2|----|-----------2|------|  (the | lines | are just for neatness)
D-----------2|----|-----------2|------|
A----0-3-2-0-|---0|----0-3-2-0-|---0--|
E-0-3-----3--|0-3-|-0-3-----3--|0-3---|

Verse 1:
                      Am
Summer kisses, Winter tears
                  Dm
That was what she gave to me
                              Em
Never thought that I'd travel all alone
    Dm            C    (mute strings at the end of this verse)
The trail of memories

Verse 2:
                    Am
Happy hours, lonely years
              Dm
But I guess I can't complain
                       Em
For I still recall the Summer sun
        Dm             C    C7
Through all the Winter rain

Bridge:
    F                 G
The fire of love, the fire of love
    C         Cm7
Can burn from afar
    Am                    Em
And nothing can light the dark of the night
Dm             G
Like a falling star

Verse 3:
                      Am
Summer kisses, Winter tears
                    Dm
Like the stars they fade away
                       Em
Leaving me to spend my lonely nights
     Dm              C
With dreams of yesterday

Bridge:
    F                 G
The fire of love, the fire of love
    C         Cm7
Can burn from afar
    Am                    Em
And nothing can light the dark of the night
Dm             G
Like a falling star

Verse 4:
                      Am
Summer kisses, Winter tears
                    Dm
Like the stars they fade away
                       Em
Leaving me to spend my lonely nights
     Dm              C
With dreams of yesterday

                       Am
Leaving me to spend my lonely nights
     G         C        (mute strings)
With dreams of yesterday

OutroL
                      Am
Summer kisses, Winter tears (Repeat as desired) (Fade out or play an Am and let it ring)

Cm7 is
e--0--|
B--0--|
G--0--|
D--2--|
A--3--|
E-(3)-|
Thought I'd put that there for if somebody needs it.  The rest are (I think) pretty 
well-known chords, but didn't know about Cm7.

The tabbed parts are not the exact recording, just "flavor enhancers" for a single 
guitarist to make it sound fuller.  The chording, though, I am confident in (though I 
might've made a mistake somewhere).
Also, try playing the Em on the 3rd line of every verse (not the bridge) like this:
e--3--| (Your pinkey on the 3rd fret of the high e string)
B--0--|
G--0--|
D--2--|
A--2--|
E--0--|



Please comment, telling me what you think, and please feel free to point out things that 
I messed up, and I hope that this comes in handy for somebody.

Good effort, beautiful song! Could be even better with some small changes, I think:

1. Before the middle 8: I think there's an "F" missing

Dm            | C F | C C7 |
Through all the winter rain

2. Middle 8: I hear different chords
F                 G
The fire of love, the fire of love
Am Em
Can burn from afar
Am D7
And nothing can light the dark of the night
Am D7 G
Like a falling star

3. End of some verses there's a special voicing:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +    1
Dm | C Cmaj7 | C6 [break]
The trail of memories
