That Summer  Garth Brooks

Album: The Chase
transcribed by: Alex Legere
Capo 2nd fret
(I'm tabbing this based on the Live Version)
I went to work for her that [G]summer
A teenage kid so far from [Em]home
She was a lonely widow [C]woman
Hell-bent to make it on her [D]own
We were a thousand miles from [G]nowhere
Wheat fields as far as I could [Em]see
Both needing something from each [C]other
Not knowing yet what that might [D]be [Gsus2] [G]
'Til she came to me one evening
Hot cup of coffee and a smile
In a dress that I was certain
She hadn't worn in quite a while
There was a difference in her laughter
There was a softness in her eyes
And on the air there was a hunger
Even a boy could recognize
[G]She had a need to feel the [D]thun-[C]der
To chase the lightning from the [G]skies
To watch a storm with all its [C]wonder
Written in her lover's [D]eyes
She had to ride the heat of [Em]passion [D] [C]
Like a comet burning [G]bright
Rushing headlong in the [C]wind
Now where only dreams have [D]been
Burning both ends of the [G]night[Gsus2] [G]
That summer wind was all around me
Nothing between us but the night
When I told her that I'd never
She softly whispered that's alright
And then I watched her hands of leather
Turn to velvet in a touch
There's never been a summer
When I have ever learned so much
During Solo:
[G] [-] [C] [-] [D] [-] [Gsus2] [-] [G]  
I often think about that summer
The sweat, the moonlight and the lace
And I have rarely held another
When I haven't seen her face
And every time I pass a wheat field
And watch it dancing with the wind
Although I know it isn't real
I just can't help but feel
Her hungry arms again
