Reelin in the years  Steely Dan



              [D]  Your ever last[A/C#]in' summer, you [Bm7]can see it fadin' fa[A]st,
              [D]  So you grab a piece of[A/C#] somethin' that [Bm7]you think is gonna l[A]ast.
      [C#/E]  Well, you wouldn't even know[C/Eb] a diamond if [B/D]you held it in[A/C#] your hand;
              [D]  The things you think[A/C#] are precious I [Bm7]can't understan[A]d.

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 :
you [Em7]wouldn't even know  a d[B/D#]iamond  if  you h[Dm7]eld  it  in your  h[A/C#]and
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)
              [D]  Your ever last[A/C#]in' summer, you [Bm7]can see it fadin' fa[A]st,
              [D]  So you grab a piece of[A/C#] somethin' that [Bm7]you think is gonna l[A]ast.
      [C#/E]  Well, you wouldn't even know[C/Eb] a diamond if [B/D]you held it in[A/C#] your hand;
              [D]  The things you think[A/C#] are precious I [Bm7]can't understan[A]d.
        CHORUS: Are you reelin' in the [Gmaj9]years, stowin away the ti[A]me?
| 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
              [D]  You been tellin' me you're [A/C#]a genius [Bm7]since you were s[A]eventeen;
              [D]  In all the tim[A/C#]e I've known you I [Bm7]still don't know what you m[A]ean.
              [C#/E]  The weekend at the co[C/Eb]llege didn't t[B/D]urn out like you [A/C#]planned;
              [D]  The things that [A/C#]pass for knowledge[Bm7] I can't under[A]stand.
CHORUS
              [D]  I've spent a lit of [A/C#]money and I s[Bm7]pent a lot of t[A]ime;
              [D]  The trip we made to [A/C#]Hollywood [Bm7]is etched upon my m[A]ind.
              [C#/E]  After all the things [C/Eb]we've done and seen [B/D]you find anot[A/C#]her man;
              [D]  The things you think [A/C#]are useless I [Bm7]can't unders[A]tand.
