Capo 4


[Am]Ramblin[C]' where to begin
[Em]I taste the summer on your [G]peppery skin
[Am]Been saved [C]the warmer the waves
[Em]I felt a slip into a [G]watery grave
Am C Em G (2x)

[Am]My girl,[C] linen and curls
[Em]Lips parting like a flag all un[G]furled
[Am]She's grand[C] the bend of her hand
[Em]Digging deep into the sw[G]eep of the sand
Am C Em G (2x)

[G]Summer [Am]arrives [Em]with a length of l[Am]ights
[Em]Summer [Am]blows a[F]way
[C]And quietly gets [G]swallowed by a [Am]wave   [C]      [Em]         [G]
[Am]It gets[C] swall[Em]owed by a[G] wave

Waylay the din of the day
Boats bobbing in the blue of the bay
In deep far beneath all the dead sailors
Slowly slipping to sleep

My girl, linen and curls
Lips parting like a flag all unfurled
She's grand the bend of her hand
Digging deep into the sweep of the sand

Summer arrives with a length of lights
Summer blows away
And quietly gets swallowed by a wave
It gets swallowed by a wave...
