Am       C 
Ramblin' where to begin
Em                         G
I taste the summer on your peppery skin
Am             C
Been saved the warmer the waves
Em                   G
I felt a slip into a watery grave

   Am   C     Em   G        Am        C     Em   G
Oh oh,  uh ho ho,     la de da de da, uh ho ho, 

Am       C
My girl, linen and curls
Em                  G
Lips parting like a flag all unfurled
Am              C
She's grand the bend of her hand
Em                                 G
Digging deep into the sweep of the sand

G      Am       Cmaj7 
Summer arrives (oh oh oh oh)
Em               Am       Cmaj7
with a length of lights  (oh oh oh oh)
Em     Am    F
Summer blows away
    C            G              (intro)  Am  C  Em
And quietly gets swallowed by a wave
G
It gets swallowed by a wave

(intro)  Am  C  Em G

Am         C
Waylay the din of the day
Em                   G
Boats bobbing in the blue of the bay
Am      C           
In deep far beneath
Em                   G
all the dead sailors Slowly slipping to sleep

Am       C
My girl, linen and curls
Em                  G
Lips parting like a flag all unfurled
Am              C
She's grand the bend of her hand
Em                                 G
Digging deep into the sweep of the sand

G      Am       Cmaj7 
Summer arrives (oh oh oh oh)
Em               Am       Cmaj7
with a length of lights  (oh oh oh oh)
Em     Am    F
Summer blows away
    C            G              (intro)  Am  C  Em
And quietly gets swallowed by a wave
G
It gets swallowed by a wave
