E|-2-------------|	A/F# - E - B7 - A/F# - E - B7

         A/F#                                          
It was a     hot afternoon,
    E                                               
the   last day of June, 
       B7                                           
and the   sun was a demon.
    A/F#                                              
The       clouds were afraid, 
    E                                               
one   ten in the shade, 
        B7                                           
and the    pavement was steamin'
  A/F#                                                
I       told Billy Ray 
                  E                                
in his red Chevro-    let, 
                       B7                            
I needed time for some     thinkin'. 
      A/F#                                            
I was       just walking by 
       E                                            
when I   looked in her eye, 
                   B7                                
and I swore it was     winkin'. 

D                              Bm                      
  She was thirty-one, and I was    seventeen, 
C#m                                     F#m                
    I knew nothing about love, she knew     everything. 
   D                                Bm                  
But   I sat down beside her on that    front porch swing, 
    C#7                                      F#m           
and     wondered what the coming night would     bring. 

B - F#madd11=2x

    A/F#                                               
The      sun closed her eyes 
      E                                             
as it    climbed in the skies, 
       B7                                            
and it     started to swelter. 
    A/F#                                               
The     sweat trickled down 
    E                                               
the   front of her gown, 
  B7                                                
I     thought it would melt her. 
   A/F#                                               
She     threw back her hair 
     E                                              
like   I wasn't there, 
    B7                                              
she    sipped on a Julep. 
    A/F#                                               
Her     shoulders were bare, 
      E                                             
and I    tried not to stare, 
       B7                                            
when I   looked at her two lips. 

    D                                   Bm              
And  when she looked at me, I heard her    softly say, 
   C#m7                                      F#m           
'I     know you're young, you don't know what     to do or say. 
    D                               Bm                  
But  stay with me until the sun has    gone away, 
    C#7                              F#m                  
and    I will chase the boy in you a-     way.

F#m/D                             D/B                       
      And then she smiled, then we   talked for a while, 
       C#m7                          F#                    
and we      walked for a mile to the    sea. 
   F#m/D                        D/B                         
We      sat on the sand, and the     boy took her hand, 
       C#m7                      F#                        
but he     saw the sun rise as a    man. 

F#m/D - C#m7 - C#m7 - F#	2x	B - F#madd11=2x

    A/F#                                              
Ten      years have gone by 
       E                                          
since I  looked in her eyes, 
       B7                                          
but the  memory lingers. 
     A/F#                                             
I go      back in my mind 
       E                                           
to the  very first time, 
        B7                                         
feel the  touch of her fingers. 
         A/F#                                         
It was a     hot afternoon, 
   E                                              
the  last day of June, 
        B7                                          
and the     sun was a demon...
