INTRO version 2 (chords only)

[1]C#m [2] [3] [4]C#m [1]B [2] [3] [4] [1]F#m [2] [3] [4]F#m [1]A [2] [3] [4] x4
He [E]materialized at the [B]edge of my street
In a [G#m]big beater car that never [A]missed a bea[B]t
I [E]guess you could say that's wh[B]en it all began
[G#m] [A] [B]  
He se[F#m]duced me on my [B]way home from marching [C#m]band
It was [F#m]1991
1 . . . 2 . . .
[F#m] [G#m] [A]  
N/C (No Chord)
It was the summer of the purple man

[E]1 . 2 . [B] 3 . 4 . [G#m]1 . 2 . [A] 3 . 4
 G|-1-------1-----8-8---------4-4---4-------------6---6-------------| x2

[E]God only knows we didn't [B]know we did
You bet we [G#m]played that card 'cause we were [A]just kids[B]
Re-[E]educated while [B]working on our tan[G#m]s[A] [B]
He con[F#m]trolled us with the [B]touch of his purple h[C#m]and
We were [F#m]falling one by one
1 . . . 2 . . .
[F#m] [G#m] [A]  
It was the summer of the purple man
[C#m]Suddenly the universe was out of [B]whack
And once you [A]go there, you can't come [E]back
And [C#m]daddy looked like he was gonna have a heart a[B]ttack
[A]Clenched his fist and he [E]said
[A]"When I get my hands on [E]that mother f**ker
Gonna [A]put his purple nads in the [B]ground and weigh the f**ker *
* (Please comment if you know what he says in this line.)
I'll [A]tear him limb from limb on a torture [B]rack"
The [E]afternoons were [B]spent in nap
The [G#m]nights for sitting [A]on his lap[B]
[E]Feeding him purple [B]beans out of a [G#m]can[A] [B]
[F#m]Everything going a[B]ccording to his [C#m]plan
It was the [F#m]last time I had fun, yeah
1 . . . 2 . . .
[F#m] [G#m] [A]  
It was the summer of the purple man
BRIDGE (same as before but play only once not twice)
[C#m]Spilling our seeds into the serpent's [B]garden
Our young love [A]muscles began to [E]harden
And [C#m]that's when mother coughed and begged our [B]pardon
[A]Cleared her throat and she [E]said
"You're such a [A]good little boy and you [E]always wanna please us
[A]Surely we can fix this with a [B]little more Jesus
And [A]pray and pray that purple gay a[B]way"
[E] Hey Nancy [B]boys this ones for you
[G#m] And the big pink [A]bubble from the gum you chew
[E] It's such a [B]hoot watching what [G#m]you've turned [A]into
[E] As the days fly [B]pass
We'll stand a[G#m]ghast, trapping you at a [A]social impasse
[E]Run out the door just as [B]fast as you can
G#m A N/C
And try to go back to the summer of the purple man
