The Boys Of Summer Chords

‣ Don Henley
[Intro]
Em    C    D    C
 
[Verse 1]
Em
   Nobody on the road, nobody on the beach.
C
  I feel it in the air, the summer's out of reach.
D
Empty lake, empty streets, the sun goes down alone.
C
  I'm driving by your house, 

though I know you're not home.
 
[Chorus]
G                 D
But I can see you, your brown skin shining in the sun.
                                     C
You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby.
G                  D
I can tell you, my love for you will still be strong
                  C
After the boys of summer have gone.
 
Em    C    D    C
 
[Verse 2]
Em
   I never will forget those nights, 

I wonder if it was a dream.
C
  Remember how you made me crazy, 

remember how I made you scream.
D
  Now I don't understand what happened to our love.
C
But babe, I'm gonna get you back, 

I'm gonna show you what I'm made of.
 
[Chorus]
G             D
I can see you, your brown skin shining in the sun.
                               C
I see you walkin' real slow and smiling to everyone.
G                  D
I can tell you, my love for you will still be strong
                  C
After the boys of summer have gone.
 
[Bridge]
Em C C D C C D A C D C
Em    C    D    C
 
[Verse 3]
Em
   Out on the road today I saw 

a Deadhead Sticker on a Cadillac.
C
  A little voice inside my head said: 

"Don't look back, you can never look back."
D
  I thought I knew what love was. What did I know?
C
  Those days are gone forever, 

I should just let 'em go, but
 
[Chorus]
G             D
I can see you, your brown skin shining in the sun.
                               C
You got the top pulled down and radio on, baby.
G                  D
I can tell you, my love for you will still be strong
                  C
After the boys of summer have gone.
 
G             D
I can see you, your brown skin shining in the sun.
                               
You got your hair slicked back 
         C
and those Wayfarers on, baby.
G                  D
I can tell you, my love for you will still be strong
                  C
After the boys of summer have gone.
