Standard tuning
Capo 2nd fret


Verse 1:
D             G            D/F#            Em              D
   On certain Sundays in November when the weather bothers me
         G               D/F#             Em              D
I empty drawers of other summers where my shadows used to be
            G              D/F#         Em              D
And she is standing by the water as her smile begins to curl
           G          D/F#         Em
In this or any other summer she is something altogether different
Em                     D
Never just an ordinary girl

G     D/F#   Em

Verse 2:
And in the evenings on Long Island when the colours start to fade
She wears a silly yellow hat that someone gave her when she stayed
I didn't think that she returned it we left New York in a whirl
Time expands and then contracts when you are spinning in the grips of
Em                             G
Someone who is not an ordinary girl

Chorus:
          A                  D                G
When you sleep you find your mother in the night
        D                 G
But she stays just out of sight
         D         F#m               A
So there isn't any sweetness in the dreaming
G              A                D               G
 And when you wake the morning covers you with light
        D               G
And it makes you feel alright
         D                  F#m             A           D
But it's just the same hard candy you're remembering again

Verse 3:
You send your lover off to China then you wait for her to call
You put your girl up on a pedestal then you wait for her to fall
I put my summer's back in a letter and I hide it from the world
All the regrets you can't forget are somehow pressed upon a picture
       Em                       G
In the face of such an ordinary girl


Chorus:
              A                  D                G
And when you sleep you find your mother in the night
        D                 G
But she stays just out of sight
         D         F#m               A
So there isn't any sweetness in the dreaming
G              A                 D               G
 And when you wake the morning showers you with light
        D               G
And it makes you feel alright
         D                  F#m             A           D
But it's just the same hard candy you're remembering again
      G      Em    A
Again, again,  again
     D                   G              A          D
It's just the same hard candy you're remembering again
      G      Em    A
Again, again,  again
         D                   G              A
And it's just the same hard candy you're remembering again

Outro: (with riff)
Go ask her to come around and see me late after dark
Don't ask me to come around then wait to see if there's a spark
Go ask her to come around and see me late after dark
Don't ask me to come around and make me wait to see the spark
Go ask her to come around late and see me after dark
Don't ask me to come around and wait to see if there is a spark
