          E             C#m
That she fell right to sleep
        E            C#m       E
In the damp tangled sheets so soon

       E           B        E
After love in the hot afternoon

She was new to me, full of mystery
           
But now I know
(But I know)


PRE-CHORUS:
      E           C#m
That she's just a girl
     E         C#m        E
And I'm just a guy, in a room

VERSE:
        E                            
We got high in the park 
      A              E
This morning and we sat, without talkin'

      E
Then we came back here
        A           E
In the heat of the day, tired of walkin'


PRE-CHORUS:
       E         C#m
Where under her breath
     E           C#m     E
She hummed to herself a tune

    E           B        E
Of love in the hot afternoon

Gene Watson is up there with the country greats. I don't think I ever heard one of his songs that I didn't like. He was always a mainstay on the beer joint juke boxes I use to play, thanks for this great tab.
