Summer(The First Time.)Bobby Goldsboro.
#18 in 1973.

INTRO:  B A E B 
  
   
#1.  
B A E It was a hot afternoon, the last day of June,
B F#m B F#m and the sun was a demon.
A E The clouds were afraid, one ten in the shade,
B F#m B F#m and the pavement was steamin'.
#2.
A E I told Billy Ray in his red Chevrolet,
B F#m B F#m I needed time for some thinkin'.
A E I was just walking by when I looked in her eye,
B F#m B F#m and I swore it was winkin'.
CHORUS:
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 B and wondered what the coming night would bring.
#3.
A E The sun closed her eyes as it climbed in the skies,
B F#m B F#m and it started to swelter.
A E The sweat trickled down the front of her gown,
B F#m B F#m I thought it would melt her.
#4.
A E She threw back her hair like I wasn't there,
B F#m B F#m she sipped on a Julep.
A E Her shoulders were bare, and I tried not to stare,
B F#m B F#m when I looked at her two lips.
CHORUS:#2:
D Bm And when she looked at me, I heard her softly say,
C#m 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 B F#m B F#m B and I will chase the boy in you away.
F#m D And then she smiled, then we talked for a while,
C#m F# and we walked for a mile to the sea.
F#m D We sat on the sand, and the boy took her hand,
C#m F# but he saw the sun rise as a man.
D Bm C#7 F#m (x2) B #5.
A E Ten years have gone by since I looked in her eyes,
B F#m B F#m but the memory lingers.
A E I go back in my mind to the very first time,
B F#m B F#m feel the touch of her fingers.
OUTRO:
A E It was a hot afternoon, the last day of June,
B F#m B F#m and the sun was a demon...
A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.
