There's a version already on ultimate-guitar for this song, but I felt that a few chords and the solo might have
been off, and I also really like this acoustic version from a show in the late nineties in Sydney:

So, I decided to tab this version out.  Hope you like it, it's my first tab!

Since I'm trying to put some theory behind my playing, I'm pretty sure the song is in the key of D#m, and
the solo/riff is built off of a C# Major scale with a flattened octave on the first note!  These goofy goofs,  
they sure know what they're doing.

F# C#

F# C#

F#             C#
   On darkened streets tonight
F#         C#
   I see a simple time
F#           C#
   I see the warning light
        G#m            B
And the summer comes undone

F#          C#
   No sorry closing eyes
F#            C#
   No cutting down to size
F#          C#
   No other thoughts arise
        G#m            B
And the summer comes undone

   Take in the lonely site
        G#m            B
And the summer comes undone
