The Summer Place
Fountains of Wayne
Key: C

| Am | F | C | E7 | Am | F | 
C | E7 | F G | C C/B | 
Am | C C/B | Am |

C           C/B          Am
She's been afraid of the Cuisinart
C              C/B     Am
Since nineteen seventy seven
C        C/B       Am
Now when she opens up the house
          E7                       F   | F G |
Well, she won't set foot in the kitchen
C             C/B       Am
Her brother's dating an architect
C              C/B        Am
They're coming up for the weekend
C        C/B          Am
He never gave her the proper respect
        E7                             F
But she still meets the ferry to greet them

F         C            E7                     Am     
        G
Oh at the summer place we've got the space if you've got the time
F       C               G           E7
And the summer place is so far away it's another state of
| Am    |F   |C     |E7  |Am    |F 
  |C    | E7  | F G |
  Mi-i-i-ind, mi-i-i-ind, mi-i-i-ind, mi-i-i-ind

C        C/B          Am
She ran away back in '78
C             C/B          Am
Just down the beach to the neighbors'
C                C/B        Am
They brought her back after sunset
               E7                F    | F G |
Her dad said, "Don't do me any favors"
C             C/B        Am
Her mom would sit on the patio
C            C/B        Am
She said she needed the sea air
C             C/B      Am
She'd drink a fifth of Seagrams
               E7                      F
And then she'd sink down into her deck chair

F         C            E7                     Am     
        G
Oh at the summer place we've got the space if you've got the time
F       C               G           E7
And the summer place is so far away it's another state of
| Am    |F   |C     |E7  |Am    |F 
  |C    | E7  | F G |
  Mi-i-i-ind, mi-i-i-ind, mi-i-i-ind, mi-i-i-ind

Am          G
 At fifteen shoplifting
C             F
 Was the only game she liked to play
Am        G
 At forty she's so bored she
C                 F
 Thinks about it then decides to pay
Am            G
And still she can't help feeling
      D/F#                D/F#         G
Those good old days don't seem so far away
    E7
Was it just yesterday

C          C/B        Am
She took a handful of mushrooms
C        C/B        Am
That she got from a surfer
C             C/B          Am
She spent the night in the hospital room
       E7                    F
So the doctors could observe her

F         C            E7                             
Am      G
Oh at the summer place we've got the space you should drop on by
F      C                G                     E7
At the summer place the injuries fade but the memories last a life-
| Am    |F     |C           |E7   |
  Ti-i-i-ime, a lifetimi-i-i-ime
| Am          |F     |C           |E7   | F 
G | A |
A lifetimi-i-i-ime, a lifetimi-i-i-ime          <> (pushed)


At the end of the first two lines in each verse the chord pattern rocks between Am and 
Am7 twice: C C/B Am (Am Am7 Am Am7)

C   = 032010
C/B = 020010
Am  = 002210
Am7 = 002010
