Verse 1: 
C         E7             Am
She's been afraid of the Cuisinart
C               E7     Am
Since nine-teen seventy-seven
C         E7        Am
Now when she opens up the house
         E7                  F        
Well she won't set foot in the kitchen
C            E7          Am
Her brother's dating an architect
C             E7          Am
They're coming up for the weekend
C         E7         Am
He never gave her the proper respect
    E7                           F         
But she still meets the ferry to greet them

Chorus:
F          C             E7
Oh, at the summer place, we got the space
   Am             G
if you've got the time
F       C            G
At the summer place, its so far away
E7                      
It's another state of...
Am   F   C    E7  Am    F  C    E7 (repeat intro riff over chorus) F, G
Miiind,  Miiind,  Miiind,  Miiind 

Verse 2:
C       E7           Am
She ran away back in seventy eight
C            E7            Am
Just down the beach to the neighbor's
C              E7           Am
They brought her back after sunset
            E7                 F     
Her Dad said "Don't do me any favors"
C        E7        Am
Her Mom sat on the patio
C            E7         Am
She said she needed the sea air
C           E7        Am
She drank a fifth of Seagram's
               E7                F
And then she'd sink down into her deck chair

Chorus 2:
F          C             E7
Oh, at the summer place, we got the space
   Am             G
if you've got the time
F       C            G
At the summer place, its so far away
E7                      
It's another state of...
Am   F   C    E7  Am    F  C    E7 (repeat intro riff over chorus) F, G
Miiind,  Miiind,  Miiind,  Miiind 

Bridge:
Am           E7
At fifteen, shop-lifting
C             F
Was the only game she liked to play
Am        E7         
At forty, she's so bored she
C               F
Thinks about it then decides to play
Am             G
But still she can't help feeling
D/F#                                  G
Those good old days don't seem so far away
                   E7
(seem so far away) Just like yesterday

Verse 3:
C          E7         Am
She took a handful of mushrooms
C        E7         Am
That she got from a surfer
C           E7         Am
She spent a night in a hospital room
E7                    F
So the doctors could observe her

Chorus 3:
F          C             E7                   Am                G
Oh, at the summer place, We've got the space, you should drop on by
F          C
Oh, at the summer place
G                        E7            
the injuries fade but the memories last a life
Am     F
Tiiiime
   C      E7
A lifetiiiime
  Am     F
A lifetiiiime
 C      E7
A lifetiiiime

Outro:
F, G, (pause) A
