...HIGH SUMMER... by Van Morrison
-----------------................

*from 'Back on Top' (1999)*


*CAPO 3rd FRET*

(Original Key: Eb)


Intro:

Am  F  G, C, F  C (x2)

Verse 1:

(C)                    Am
 By the mansion on the hillside,
F                     G                C    F, C
 Red sports car comes driving down the road.
          C/B         Am
And pulls up into the driveway,
F      G             C    F, C
 And a story does un-fold.

Verse 2:

C               C/B          Am
 She's standing by the rhodo-dendrons,
F          G            C     F, C
 Where the roses are in bloom.
                      C/B    Am
Looking out at the At-lantic ocean,
F           G                  C    F, C
 And in her head she hums this tune.

Verse 3:

C                                       C/B  Am
 Thank god the dark nights, are drawing in a-gain,
F          G                 C    F, C
 'Cos high summer has got me down.
                   C/B    Am
I'll wait till the end of August,
F        G                 C     F, C
 And get off this merry-go-round.

Verse 4:

C                  C/B    Am
 And they shut him out of paradise,
F           G            C       F, C
 Called him Lucifer, and frowned.
                  C/B      Am
She took pride in what God made him,
                F                           C      F, C
Even before the angels shot him down to the ground.

Verse 5:

C                 C/B    Am
 He's a light out of the darkness,
F       G              C     F, C
 And he wears a starry crown.
               C/B          Am
If you see him nothing will shake him,
F          G                      C    F, C
 'Cos high summer has got him low down.

Solo:

Am  F  G, C, F  C (x2)

Bridge 1:

C                      Dm
 High summer's got him lonesome,
G                       Am                 F
 Even when he makes the rounds, (makes the rounds).
F                           Dm
 There's been no two ways a-bout it;
G                          C    F, C
 High summer's got him low down.

Verse 6:

C                               Am
 Checked in to the tiny village by the lakeside,
F        G               C   F, C
 Settled down to start a-new.
                  C/B  Am
Far away from the poli-ticians,
F        G           C   F, C
 And the many chosen few.

Verse 7:

C                  C/B      Am
 Far away from the jealousy factor,
F                        G             C    F, C
 And everything that was tearing him a-part.
                  C/B   Am
Far away from the organ grinder,
F         G                     C    F, C
 And everyone that played their part.

Verse 8:

C                  C/B    Am
 And they shut him out of paradise,
F           G            C       F, C
 Called him Lucifer, and frowned.
                  C/B      Am
She took pride in what God made him,
                F                           C      F, C
Even before the angels shot him down to the ground.

Verse 9:

C                 C/B    Am
 He's a light out of the darkness,
F       G              C     F, C
 And he wears a starry crown.
               C/B          Am
If you see him nothing will shake him,
F          G                      C    F, C
 'Cos high summer has got him low down.

Solo:

Am  F  G, C, F  C (x2)

Coda:

C              C/B    Am
 High summer's on the rebound,
F     G                    C    F, C
 High summer's got him low down.
C              C/B    Am
 High summer's on the rebound,
F     G                    C    F, C
 High summer's got him low down.
C              C/B    Am
 High summer's on the rebound,
F     G                    C    F    C
 High summer's got him low down, low down.
