[Verse 1]
         Em7                 D          Dsus2
It was a hot afternoon, the last day of June,
         A7      A7sus2   (A7sus2)  Em6/C#
And the sun was a demon,   [*Riff]
     Em7                     D         Dsus2
The clouds were afraid, one ten in the shade,
          A7          A7sus2    (A7sus2)  Em6/C#
And the pavement was steaming!  [*Riff]


[Verse 2]
  Em7                       D          Dsus2
I told Billy Ray ...in his red Chevro - let,
        A7            A7sus2    (A7sus2)   Em6/C#
Needed time for some thinking,  [*Riff]
       Em7                      D          Dsus2
I was just walking by, when I looked in her eye,
       A7           A7sus2  (A7sus2)    Em6/C#
And I swore it was winking!  [*Riff]


[Verse 3]
Cmaj7                             Am7
 She was thirty one, and I was seventeen,
Bm7                                    Em9
 I knew nothing about love, she knew everything,
   Cmaj7                          Am7 
But I sat down beside her on her front porch swing,
       Bm7                B7               Em7   F#m7/E
And wondered what...the coming night would bring--------!

[Verse 4]
    Em7                          D            Dsus2
The sun closed her eyes, as it climbed in the skies,
         A7       A7sus2    (A7sus2)   Em6/C#
And it started to swelter,  [*Riff]
     Em7                      D          Dsus2
The sweat trickled down the front of her gown,
         A7            A7sus2    (A7sus2)    Em6/C#
And I thought it would melt her! [*Riff]


[Verse 5]
     Em7                     D        Dsus2
She threw back her hair like I wasn't there,
      A7        A7sus2   (A7sus2)    Em6/C#
She sipped on a Julep,   [*Riff]
      Em7                        D          Dsus2
Her shoulders were bare, and I tried not to stare,
         A7          A7sus2    (A7sus2)   Em6/C#
When I looked at her two lips! [*Riff]


[Verse 6]
Cmaj7                                Am7
 When she looked at me, I heard her softly say,
   Bm7                                       Em9
"I know you're young, you don't know what to do, or say,
    Cmaj7                           Am7
But stay with me until the sun has gone away, 
   Bm7               B7             Em7   F#m7/E
And I will chase the boy in you a - way----------!

[Verse 7]
Em9                          Cmaj7
And then she smiled, then we talked for a while,
         Bm7                       E7      E7sus4  E7(no3)
Then we walked for a mile, to the sea,
  Cmaj7                   Am7
We sat on the sand, and a boy took her hand,
      Bm7                    E7    E7sus4  E7(no3)
But I saw the sun rise as a man!

[Verse 8]
     Em7                            D          Dsus2
Ten years have gone by ...since I looked in her eyes,
          A7   A7sus2    (A7sus2)   Em6/C#
But the memory lingers,  [*Riff]
     Em7                        D         Dsus2
I go back in my mind ...to the very first time,
          A7          A7sus2    (A7sus2)   Em6/C#
Feel the touch of her fingers!  [*Riff]


[Verse 9]
         Em7                 D          Dsus2
It was a hot afternoon, the last day of June,
         A7       A7sus2   (A7sus2)  Em6/C#
And the sun was a demon,   [*Riff]
     Em7                     D         Dsus2
The clouds were afraid, one ten in the shade,
           A7         A7sus2
And the pavement was steaming!
