Verse 1:

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

Verse 2:

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

Verse 3:

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

Verse 4:

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

Verse 5:

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

Bridge 1:

[C] High summer's got him [Dm]lonesome,

[F] There's been no two ways a-[Dm]bout it;
G C F, C
High summer's got him low down.

Verse 6:

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

Verse 7:

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

Verse 8:

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

Verse 9:

[C] He's a light out [C/B]of the [Am]darkness,
F G C F, C
And he wears a starry crown.
If you see him [C/B]nothing will [Am]shake him,

'Cos high summer has got him low down.

High summer's got him low down.

Low [C]down.
