(Original Key: Eb)


Intro:

Am  F  G, C
F  C

(x2)

Verse 1:

(C)                    Am
 By the mansion on the hillside,
F
 Red sports car comes,
G                 C    F, C
 Driving down the road.
          C/B         Am
And pulls up into the driveway,
F      G             C     F, C
 And a story does un-fold.

Verse 2:

C               C/B          Am
 She's standing by the rhodo-dendrons,
F          G            C      F, C
 Where the roses are in bloom.
                      C/B    Am
Looking out at the At-lantic ocean,
F           G                  C    F, C
 And in her head she hums this tune.

Verse 3:

C
 Thank god the dark nights,
            C/B  Am
Are drawing in a-gain,
F          G                 C    F, C
 'Cos high summer has got me down.
                   C/B    Am
I'll wait till the end of August,
F        G                 C      F, C
 And get off this merry-go-round.

Verse 4:

C                  C/B    Am
 And they shut him out of paradise,
F           G           C        F, C
 Called him Lucifer and frowned.
                  C/B      Am
She took pride in what God made him,
                F
Even before the angels,
                     C      F, C
Shot him down to the ground.

Verse 5:

C                 C/B    Am
 He's a light out of the darkness,
F       G              C     F, C
 And he wears a starry crown.
               C/B          Am
If you see him nothing will shake him,
F          G                      C    F, C
 'Cos high summer has got him low down.

Solo:

Am  F  G, C

(x2)

Bridge 1:

C                      Dm 
 High summer's got him lonesome,
G                       Am
 Even when he makes the rounds,
           F
(Makes the rounds).

F                           Dm
 There's been no two ways a-bout it;
G                          C    F, C
 High summer's got him low down.

Verse 6:

C
 Checked in to the tiny village,
Am
 By the lakeside,
F        G               C   F, C
 Settled down to start a-new.
                  C/B  Am
Far away from the poli-ticians,
F        G           C   F, C
 And the many chosen few.

Verse 7:

C                  C/B      Am
 Far away from the jealousy factor,
F
 And everything,
         G             C    F, C
That was tearing him a-part.
                  C/B   Am
Far away from the organ grinder,
F         G                     C    F, C
 And everyone that played their part.

Verse 8:

C                  C/B    Am
 And they shut him out of paradise,
F           G           C        F, C
 Called him Lucifer and frowned.
                  C/B      Am
She took pride in what God made him,
                F
Even before the angels,
                     C      F, C
Shot him down to the ground.

Verse 9:

C                 C/B    Am
 He's a light out of the darkness,
F       G              C     F, C
 And he wears a starry crown.
               C/B          Am
If you see him nothing will shake him,
F          G                      C    F, C
 'Cos high summer has got him low down.

 High summer's got him low down,
    C
Low down.
