1/2 Step Down

When I play it I usually keep my 3rd and 4th fingers where they were on the G 
chord through the other chords. I think it gives it a more bright tone and sounds 
better with the record. Enjoy!! :)

Intro
----------
D - G - Em - C - D - G - Em - C

Verse 1
------------
C         G                      
Like the ferris wheel goes a round and a round
           Em
Well, the trouble with up is there's always a down
           C
First I'm holding your hand and we're on the boardwalk
      D
It's heaven right here on these streets and these docks
        G
But the sun keeps setting and days go fast and
    Em
The sand on the beach is like an hour glass
    C
And I can just feel it all slipping away and
D
Babe I can already say that

Chorus
----------
              G
As long as I live
           Em
Whatever I do
    C
As great as it is, you know what's a bummer
D                                                   
I ain't never gonna beat this summer with
G               Em  
You, baby it's true
     C
The taste of your kiss is so bittersweet
               D
I ain't gonna beat, no way I'm gonna beat
                  G     Em  C  D
This summer with you

Verse 2
-----------
G
Before you know it it's all gonna stop
             Em
They'll be rollin' up windows and puttin' up tops
      C
Be a cold wind blowing leaves through the air
          D
And you won't find a tan line anywhere (anywhere)
G
Baby I know that it ain't over yet
    Em
So lets make the most of what we have left
         C
But it's hard living for this moment we're in
     D
And knowing it's all gonna end

Chorus
------------
                  G
And as long as I live
          Em
Whatever I do
    C
As great as it is you know what's a bummer
 D
I ain't ever gonna beat this summer with
G               Em
You, baby it's true
     C
The taste of your kiss is so bittersweet
            D
I ain't gonna beat, no way I'm gonna beat
                  G
This summer with you

Bridge
----------
D                                   Bm
Yeah, lookin at you girl standin' there
                                           C
Got your wayfarers on and the sun in your hair

And just like a song in a sea shell
           D
You'll be stuck in my mind

Bouncing round in my head

And baby I can tell

Chorus
-----------
                   G
That as long as I live
           Em
Whatever I do
   C
As great as it is you know what's a bummer
D
I ain't ever gonna beat this summer with 
G              Em
You, baby its true
      C
The taste of your kiss is so bittersweet
D
I ain't gonna beat, no way I'm gonna beat
                  G
This summer with you
