Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Summer in the City  Lovin' Spoonful

[Am]Hot town, [Am7]summer in the city
[D]Back of my neck getting [F]dirty and gritty[E]
[Am]Been down, [Am7]Isn't it a pity
[D]Doesn't seem to be a [F]shadow in the city[E]
[E]All around, [E7]people looking half dead
[Am]Walking on the sidewalk, [A]hotter than a match head.

[Dm]But at night it's a [G]different world
[Dm]Go out and [G]find a girl
[Dm]Come-on come-on and [G]dance all night
[Dm]Despite the heat it'll [G]be alright
And [Bm]Babe, don't you [Em]know it's a pity
That the [Bm]days can't [E]be like the nights
In the [Bm]summer, In the [E]city, In the [Bm]summer, In the [E]city

Cool town, evening in the city
Dressing so sharp and looking so pretty
Cool cat, looking for a kitty
Gonna look in every corner of the city
Till I'm wheezing at 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
Repeat VERSE 1
