Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Summer in the city  Lovin' Spoonful



[Cm]Hot town, [Bb]summer in the city
[F]Back of my neck getting [Ab]dirty and gritty   (*see below)
[Cm]Been down, [Bb]Isn't it a pity
[F]Doesn't seem to be a [Ab]shadow in the city
[G]All around, [G7]people looking half dead
[Cm]Walking on the sidewalk, [C]hotter than a match head.
CHORUS:
[F]But at night it's a [Bb]different world
[F]Go out and [Bb]find a girl
[F]Come-on come-on and [Bb]dance all night
[F]Despite the heat it'll [Bb]be alright
And [Dm]Babe, don't you [G]know it's a pity
That the [Dm]days can't [G]be like the nights
In the [Dm]summer, In the [G]city, In the [Dm]summer, In the [G]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 at the rooftop.
But at night it's a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come-on come-on and dance all night
Despite the heat it'll be alright
And Babe, don't you know it's a pity
That the days can't be like the nights
In the summer, In the city, In the summer, In the city
