"Bummer In The Summer"
(Arthur Lee)
[(D)] [E] [G/D] [E] [G/D] [E] [G] [A] 
[/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] 
(acoustic guitar, 2X; continue into verse):
[D]v v [C]v v

Verse 1:
Well I rem[D]ember when you used to l[C]ook so good
And I d[D]id everything that I p[C]ossibly could for y[D]ou[C] [D] [C]
We used to r[D]ide around all o[C]ver town
But they're p[D]uttin' you down for b[C]ein' around with [D]me[C] [D] [C]
But you can [E]go ahead if you [G/D]want [E]to
'C[G/D]ause I ai[E]n't got [G]no papers [A]on y[D]ou[C] [D] [C]
Verse 2:
In the middle of the summer I had a job bein' a plumber
Just to pass till the fall it was you I wanna ball all day
Ah-we were walkin' along, honey, hand in hand
I'm a-thinkin' of you, mama, when you're thinkin' of another man
But you can go ahead if you want to
'Cause I ain't got no papers on you
(No, I don't I ain't got no papers on myself)
Break ("Bo Diddley" beat):
[D] [G] [D] [C] [D] [G] [D] [C] 
[/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] 
(repeat intro)
(guitar solo over D-C intro riff (8X))
Verse 3:
All alone on the bone when I didn't have a home
When I saw the way I was and I knew where I was supposed to be
I was twitchin' so I turned and it's really hard to learn
That everyone I saw was just another part of me
But you can go ahead if you want to
'Cause nobody's got no papers on you
(No, babe, it's just a falsehood)
(repeat break)
(repeat intro; end cold on D)
