This is a great song for learning how to strum with rhythm, use open chords, and sing with your guitar. There's only four chords involved, and the rhythm is pretty straight forward. *Austin plays this song with a Capo on the 4th fret* Intro: Am Well I can see the street lights pass me by, F C G Out into the darkness from the light. F C C G Am And you grew up a dancer, yes, I grew up as your friend. F C G C G Am If I get to Ohio, hope I see you dance again. F C G C C C G Am Now I can see the street lights pass me by. F C G Two more hours and I won't need these lights. F C C G Am And I could hear you singing through your window way back when. F C G C If I get to Ohio, hope I hear you sing again. Chorus: F C Am G But hey hey summer rose, did you wither long ago? F C Am G Did you shed your peddles like my teeth upon this road? C C G Am Or are you walking barefoot down your stairs, F C G Spinning records, red rose in your hair? F C C G Am And do you smile gently while the rest just make amends? F C G C G Am If I get to Ohio, hope I see you smile again. F C G F C C G Am F C G C Outro: (Listen to the song to hear how Austin goes in and out with the his strumming) F C Am G Well hey hey summer rose, did you wither long ago? F C Am G Did you shed your peddles like my teeth upon this road, C C G Am Where I can see the sun burn through the clouds, F C G and I can feel this heater burning out? F C C G Am And I can think of everywhere that I have never been. F C G C If I get to Ohio, hope I never leave again. F C G C But if I get to Ohio, hope I never leave again. **TIP: When you're going from a C chord to a G and then an Am chord like when he sings "I grew up as your friend" in the beginning, you don't need to play the big E- string with the G chord. Instead, simply take your middle finger off the D- string and place it on the 2nd fret of the A- string when your going from a C chord to an Am chord. This transition is used in alot of songs, and is al so in this one at times.
