                          SUMMERTIME - Michelle Branch
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Krista
Email: leavethepieces@gmail.com

Tuning: Capo on 3rd (Michelle plays with it on 2nd for acoustic performances)

This song was pretty confusing for me to tab out,
it's kind of half picking/strumming so I wasn't sure
whether I should just write out chords or a tab...
But here's how I did it, and I know it looks confusing
but every part of the song is here, I promise!
It's just remembering where to play what that's hard...
Let me know if it's too confusing, I'll figure something out.

Here's the basic idea for riffs during the verses:

0h2 3 2        0       3         2h3            2h3 (G)
      It's the time of year with things growing wild
0h2 3      2     0    3           0h2 (D)
    Love's found underneath the stars

  Em7 D/F# G     Cadd9                 D
e|-3---3---3-------3---3---3---3---3---2---2-| Riff 3
B|-3---3---3-------3---3---3---3---3---3---3-|
G|-0---0---0-------0---0---0---0---0-0h2-0h2-|
D|-2---0---0-------2-------------------------|
A|-2---0---2-0h2-2h3-3---2---0---------------|
E|-0-0h2---3-------x-------------3-----------|

And here's how riff 3 should be:

             Em7        D/F#
Does it break your heart
         G    0h2    Cadd9
When you think about me
         3  2   0  3  D
Do you remember to forget


e|---3---3---3-| Riff 4
B|---3---3---3-|
G|---0---0---0-|
D|-0h2---0---0-|
A|---3---3---2-|
E|---x---x---3-|


Now, when I say Chords, play these: D Em7 Cadd G D

IE: The chorus is a combination of "Chords" and Riff 3

      D                Em7
 I go back there in my mind
 Cadd9        G              D
 Kissing underneath the moonlight
Em7      D/F#          G            0h2   Cadd9
 Discovering things we thought we'd never find
      3     2         0    3         D
 When I was yours and baby you were mine

Lyrics:

Verse 1:
It's the time of year with things growing wild
Love's found underneath the stars
Kids are playing in the backyard now
Catching fireflies in a jar
I am sitting on my back porch
And I'm wondering where you are
And if you look at the moon like I do
Does it break your heart
Does it break your heart
When you think about me
Do you remember to forget
Summertime 

Chorus:
I go back there in my mind 
Kissing underneath the moonlight
Discovering things we thought we'd never find
When I was yours and baby you were mine
Summertime

Verse 2:
I thought I saw you a couple months ago
At the airport boarding a plane
I couldn't move I didn't know what to do
And you took my breath away
I heard she's wearing a shiny diamond ring
I guess you're finally moving on
I hope you're happy when she's looking up at you
And I know it might be wrong
Yeah it might be wrong
When I think about you I just can't forget
Summertime

Chorus:
I go back there in my mind 
Kissing underneath the moonlight
Discovering things we thought we'd never find
When I was yours and baby you were mine
Oh summertime

Bridge:
Summertime 
I go back there in my mind
And oh how it gets me everytime

Chorus 2:
All the flowers growing wild
Kissing underneath the moonlight
Discovering things we thought we'd never find
When I was yours and baby you were mine
Summertime

Outro:
I am sitting on my backporch
And I'm wondering where you are
