(intro)  C#m  E  G#m B, (walk up B, C, C#m)


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

C#m   E     G#m   B        C#m   E     G#m   B
Oh oh,  uh ho ho,     la de da de da, uh ho ho,

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


C#m   E     G#m   B        C#m   E     G#m   B
Oh oh,  uh ho ho,     la de da de da, uh ho ho,


B      C#m     Emaj7
Summer arrives (oh oh oh oh)
G#m               C#m       Emaj7
with a length of lights  (oh oh oh oh)
G#m     C#m    A
Summer blows away
 E            B          (intro)  C#m  E  G#m B, (walk up B, C, C#m)
And quietly gets swallowed by a wave
G
It gets swallowed by a wave

(intro)
C#m       E   G#m   B


C#m       E
Waylay the din of the day
G#m                        B
Boats bobbing in the blue of the bay
C#m       E
In deep far beneath
G#m                        B
all the dead sailors Slowly slipping to sleep

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

B      C#m     Emaj7
Summer arrives (oh oh oh oh)
G#m               C#m       Emaj7
with a length of lights  (oh oh oh oh)
G#m     C#m    A
Summer blows away
 E            B              (intro)  C#m  E  G#m
And quietly gets swallowed by a wave
                 B       C#m
It gets swallowed by a wave
