Summer the First Time  Bobby Goldsboro

SUMMER (THE FIRST TIME) - Bobby Goldsboro
 E|-2-------------| A/F# - E - B7 - A/F# - E - B7

It was a [A/F#] hot afternoon,
the [E] last day of June,
and the[B7] sun was a demon.
The [A/F#] clouds were afraid,
one [E] ten in the shade,
and the [B7] pavement was steamin'
I [A/F#] told Billy Ray
in his red Chevro-[E] let,
I needed time for some [B7] thinkin'.
I was [A/F#] just walking by
when I [E] looked in her eye,
and I swore it was [B7] winkin'.
[D] She was thirty-one, and I was[Bm] seventeen,
[C#m] I knew nothing about love, she knew [F#m] everything.
But[D] I sat down beside her on that [Bm] front porch swing,
and [C#7] wondered what the coming night would [F#m] bring.
B - F#madd11=2x
The [A/F#] sun closed her eyes
as it [E] climbed in the skies,
and it [B7] started to swelter.
The [A/F#] sweat trickled down
the [E] front of her gown,
I [B7] thought it would melt her.
She[A/F#] threw back her hair
like [E] I wasn't there,
she [B7] sipped on a Julep.
Her [A/F#] shoulders were bare,
and I [E] tried not to stare,
when I [B7] looked at her two lips.
And [D] when she looked at me, I heard her [Bm] softly say,
'I [C#m7] know you're young, you don't know what[F#m] to do or say.
But [D] stay with me until the sun has [Bm] gone away,
and [C#7] I will chase the boy in you a-[F#m] way.
B - F#madd11=2x
[F#m/D] And then she smiled, then we[D/B] talked for a while,
and we [C#m7] walked for a mile to the [F#] sea.
We [F#m/D] sat on the sand, and the[D/B] boy took her hand,
but he [C#m7] saw the sun rise as a [F#] man.
F#m/D - C#m7 - C#m7 - F# 2x B - F#madd11=2x
Ten [A/F#] years have gone by
since I[E] looked in her eyes,
but the[B7] memory lingers.
I go [A/F#] back in my mind
to the [E] very first time,
feel the[B7] touch of her fingers.
It was a [A/F#] hot afternoon,
the[E] last day of June,
and the [B7] sun was a demon...
