Reelin in the years

Steely Dan



 DA/C#Bm7A
                Your ever lastin' summer, you can see it fadin' fast,
 DA/C#Bm7A
                So you grab a piece of somethin' that you think is gonna last.
 C#/EC/EbB/DA/C#
        Well, you wouldn't even know a diamond if you held it in your hand;
 DA/C#Bm7A
                The things you think are precious I can't understand.

This is what I dug out from Nevada. The first two lines are fine...
But C#/E , C/Eb etc for the third and fourth lines ?????
If you try these chords, they sound pretty weird. C# with an E bass ?
If you try E with a C# bass it's almost right though I prefer these chorts :
 Em7B/D#Dm7A/C#
you wouldn't even know  a diamond  if  you held  it  in your  hand
Probably it was a slip up when it was typed in, cos' everything except this
line is Ok.

Title: REELIN' IN THE YEARS (Steely Dan)
 DA/C#Bm7A
                Your ever lastin' summer, you can see it fadin' fast,
 DA/C#Bm7A
                So you grab a piece of somethin' that you think is gonna last.
 C#/EC/EbB/DA/C#
        Well, you wouldn't even know a diamond if you held it in your hand;
 DA/C#Bm7A
                The things you think are precious I can't understand.

        CHORUS: Are you reelin' in the years, stowin away the time?
| Gmaj9 A
| Are you gatherin' up the tears, have you had enough of mine
| Gmaj9 A
| Are you reelin' in the years, stowin away the time?
| Gmaj9 F#m7
| Are you gatherin' up the tears, have you had enough of mine
 DA/C#Bm7A
                You been tellin' me you're a genius since you were seventeen;
 DA/C#Bm7A
                In all the time I've known you I still don't know what you mean.
 C#/EC/EbB/DA/C#
                The weekend at the college didn't turn out like you planned;
 DA/C#Bm7A
                The things that pass for knowledge I can't understand.
CHORUS
 DA/C#Bm7A
                I've spent a lit of money and I spent a lot of time;
 DA/C#Bm7A
                The trip we made to Hollywood is etched upon my mind.
 C#/EC/EbB/DA/C#
                After all the things we've done and seen you find another man;
 DA/C#Bm7A
                The things you think are useless I can't understand.
