[Verse 1]
G                 D             Fdim               A/E
   The summer is here at last,        the sky is overcast,
   Ddim             A/C#           Bm    Bm/E E7
And no one brings a rose for Emi - ly,
G                     D          Fdim              A/E
   She watches her flowers grow,      while lovers come and go,
   Ddim             A/C#           Bm      E7/D              A
To give each other roses from her tree, but not a rose for Emily!


[Chorus]
 Bb            F                      C#dim          D
Emily------,  can't you see, there's nothing you can do?
      (Emily, can't you see,          see--------   how the sun is..)

   Gdim                 D/F#            Adim              D  D/C  G
         There's loving everywhere, but none-------  for you----!
(...shi-----------------ning again,          but not for you-------!)


[Verse 2]
G                  D          Fdim                 A/E
   Her roses are fading now,        she keeps her pride somehow,
      Ddim                 A/C#            Bm    Bm/E E7
That's all she has pro - tecting her from pain,
G                D          Fdim                A/E
   And, as the years go by,       she will grow old and die,
    Ddim          A/C#           Bm7
The roses in her garden fade a - way,
    A/C#              Bm7   E7/D             A
Not one left for her grave, not a rose for Emily!


[Chorus]
 Bb            F                      C#dim          D
Emily------,  can't you see, there's nothing you can do?
      (Emily, can't you see,          see--------   how the sun is..)

   Gdim                 D/F#            Adim              D  D/C  G
         There's loving everywhere, but none-------  for you----!
(...shi-----------------ning again,          but not for you-------!)


[Verse 3]
G                  D          Fdim                 A/E
   Her roses are fading now,        she keeps her pride somehow,
      Ddim                 A/C#            Bm    Bm/E E7
That's all she has pro - tecting her from pain,
G                D          Fdim                A/E
   And, as the years go by,       she will grow old and die,
    Ddim          A/C#           Bm7
The roses in her garden fade a - way,
    A/C#              Bm7   E7/D             A
Not one left for her grave, not a rose for Emily!

Is the Adim chord in the chorus supposed to be Edim?

No, I don't think so myself. There is an E in the chord, but, to me, it's definitely an A in the bass, so I do think Rod is playing an Adim. Although the A# in the piano chord is really not that distinct with all the vocals over it, it is in keeping with the songs character and lends it that air of mournfulness. I think this is the genius of Rod Argents arrangements, with his classical and jazz influences he often goes for the less obvious chord change. However, if you still find it a little strange, the other choice is to miss out that A# note and play an A7 instead (x02023) .
