Summer in the City  Joe Cocker

Credit to niuguitarman for the chords to the original, I've merely transposed it
and added in the extra bits/key changes from Cocker's version. You could play it
as Am with a capo on the 5th fret if you so wished, transpose it 5 steps down
using controls if applicable.
Dm | A# (repeat)
[verse 1:] 
[Dm] Hot town, [Dm/C]summer in the city; [G/B]back of my neck getting[A#] dirty and [A]gritty
[Dm] Been down, [Dm/C]isn't it a pity; [G/B]doesn't seem to be a[A#] shadow in the [A]city
[A] All around, p[A7]eople looking half dead
[Dm]Walking on the sidewalk, [D]hotter than a match head
[G] But at night it's a [C]different world
[G] Go out and [C]find a girl
[G] Come-on come-on and d[C]ance all night
[G] Despite the heat it'll [C]be alright
And [Em]babe, don't you [A]know it's a pity
That the [Em]days can't [A]be like the nights
In the [Em]summer, in the [A]city
In the [Em]summer, in the [A]city
Dm | A# (repeat)
[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 on the rooftop
[Instrumental break] 
Chords as verse
[Link to outro] 
F#m | B (repeat)
[Outro] (Verse but up a tone)
Em | Em/C | A/C# | C B |
