Verse 1:

        Am        Am/G
	Hot town, summer in the city
        F#m7 [202210]           Fmaj7        E7
	Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
        Am         Am/G
	Been down, isn't it a pity
        F#m7                 Fmaj7          E
	Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city

        E             E7
        All around, people looking half dead
         Am                       A
	Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head

Chorus (w/autoharp):

        G                   A
	But at night it's a different world
        G          A
	Go out and find a girl
        G                   A 
	Come-on come-on and dance all night
        G                      A
	Despite the heat it'll be alright

            Bm              E
	And babe, don't you know it's a pity
                 Bm        E
	That the days can't be like the nights
               Bm             E
	In the summer, in the city
               Bm             E
	In the summer, in the city

Verse 2:

	Cool town, evening in the city
	Dressing so fine and looking so pretty
	Cool cat, looking for a kitty
	Gonna look in every corner of the city
	Till I'm wheezing like a bus stop
	Running up the stairs, gonna meet you on the rooftop

	[repeat chorus]
