Summer The First Time Chords
Summer(The First Time.)Bobby Goldsboro.
#18 in 1973.

G        F                  C 
It was a hot afternoon, the last day of June, 
         G         Dm     G Dm 
and  the sun was a demon. 
    F                       C 
The clouds were afraid, one ten in the shade, 
        G            Dm      G Dm 
and the pavement was steamin'. 

  F                     C 
I told Billy Ray in his red Chevrolet, 
         G             Dm      G Dm 
I needed time for some thinkin'. 
      F                      C 
I was just walking by when I looked in her eye, 
      G            Dm      G  Dm 
and I swore it was winkin'. 
Bb                             Gm 
She was thirty-one, and I was seventeen, 
Am                                 Dm 
I knew nothing about love, she knew everything. 
    Bb                             Gm 
But I sat down beside her on that front porch swing, 
    A7                                  Dm   G  
and wondered what the coming night would bring. 
    F                         C 
The sun closed her eyes as it climbed in the skies, 
       G          Dm     G Dm 
and it started to swelter. 
    F                       C 
The sweat trickled down the front of her gown, 
  G                Dm      G Dm 
I thought it would melt her. 

    F                        C 
She threw back her hair like I wasn't there, 
    G           Dm    G Dm 
she sipped on a Julep. 
    F                          C 
Her shoulders were bare, and I tried not to stare, 
       G             Dm       G Dm 
when I looked at her two lips. 

    Bb                                  Gm 
And when she looked at me, I heard her softly say, 
   Am                                       Dm 
'I know you're young, you don't know what to do or say. 
    Bb                              Gm 
But stay with me until the sun has gone away, 
    A7                         Dm   G Dm   G Dm   G 
and I will chase the boy in you away. 
Dm                          Bb 
And then she smiled, then we talked for a while, 
       Am                      D 
and we walked for a mile to the sea. 
   Dm                      Bb 
We sat on the sand, and the boy took her hand, 
       Am                   D 
but he saw the sun rise as a man. 
Bb  Gm  A7  Dm (x2)  G  
    F                        C 
Ten years have gone by since I looked in her eyes, 
        G      Dm      G  Dm 
but the memory lingers. 
     F                      C 
I go back in my mind to the very first time, 
         G            Dm      G Dm 
feel the touch of her fingers. 

         F                  C 
It was a hot afternoon, the last day of June, 
        G         Dm      G  Dm 
and the sun was a demon... 

A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.
