[Intro]
Am  Am  Em  G  x2

[Verse 1]
Am Am Em G The summer ends and we wonder where we are
Am Am Em GAnd there you go, my friends, with your boxes in your car
C CAnd you both look so young
G GAnd last night was hard, you said
Am AmYou packed up every room
Em GAnd then you cried and went to bed
Am AmBut today you closed the door
Em EmAnd said "We have to get a move on
Fmaj7 Fmaj7It's just that time of year
G GWhen we push ourselves ahead
Am Am AmWe push ourselves ahead."
Dm DmAnd it was cloudy in the morning
Em EmAnd it rained as you drove away
Dm DmAnd the same things looked different
Em EmIt's the end of the summer
Fmaj7 Fmaj7It's the end of the summer
Em9 Em9When you move to another place
[Verse 2]
Am Am Em GAnd I feel like the neighbor's girl who will never be the same
Am Am Em GShe walked alone all spring, she had a boyfriend when the summer came
C C G GAnd he gave her flowers in a lightning storm
Am Am Em GThey disappeared at night in green fields of silver corn
Am Am Em EmAnd sometime in July she just forgot that he was leaving
Fmaj7 Fmaj7 G EmSo when the fields were dying, she held on to his sleeves
Am Am AmShe held on to his sleeves
Dm DmAnd she doesn't want to let go
Em Em'Cause she won't know what she's up against
Dm DmThe classrooms and the smart girls
Em EmIt's the end of the summer
Fmaj7 Fmaj7It's the end of the summer
Em9 Em9When you hang your flowers up to dry
[Instrumental] Am Am Em G x2 [Verse 3]
Am Am Em GAnd I had a dream, it blows the autumn through my head
Am Am Em GIt felt like the first day of school, but I was going to the moon instead
C CAnd I walked down the hall
G GWith the notebooks they got for me
Am AmMy dad led me through the house
Em GMy mom drank instant coffee
Am AmAnd I knew that I would crash
Em EmBut I didn't want to tell them
Fmaj7 Fmaj7 Fmaj7 Fmaj7There are just some moments when your family makes sense
Am Am AmThey just make sense
Dm Dm Em EmSo I raised up my arms and my mother put the sweater on
Dm Dm EmWe walked out on the dark and frozen grass
EmThe end of the summer
Em EmIt's the end of the summer
Em9 Em9When you send your children to the moon
[Verse 4]
Am Am Em G The summer ends and we wonder who we are
Am Am Em GAnd there you go, my friends, with your boxes in your car
C C G GAnd today I passed the high school, the river, the maple tree
Am AmI passed the farms that made it
Em GThrough the last days of the century
Am Em EmAnd I knew that I was going to learn again
Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7Again, in this last hazy light
G EmI saw the fields beyond the fields
Am Am AmThe fields beyond the fields
Dm DmAnd the colors are much brighter now
Em EmIt's like they really want to tell the truth
Dm Dm Em EmWe give our testimony to the end of the summer
F FIt's the end of the summer
Em9 Em9You can spin the light to gold
