The Boys Of Summer

***** TUNE TO E FLAT FOR THIS SONG *****
Otherwise the chorus chords will not work.

Key:	H - Hammer-On	P - Pull-Off
 	^F - Full Bend	^H - Half Bend 
	/ - Slide up	\ - Slide down
	~ - Vibrato

Use a clean standard tone with chorus effect for chord richness and
make good use of neck and bridge pickup switching. A few leads use the
bridge pickup with distortion. I have loved this song ever since it 
was released and since none of the tabs I found were exactly accurate,
I decided to give it a go. 

Please mail me if you find anything that needs changing.  Thanks.

Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer's out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
I'm drivin' by your house
Though I know you're not at home


Chorus
(eh, close enough for government work - arpeggiate as you like)
Play 2x

Repeat Verse

I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how you made me crazy?
Remember how I made you scream
Now I don't understand what happened to our love
But babe, I'm gonna get you back

Repeat Verse:
(The seagull sounds may be a synth effect but can be created by scraping the pick against the higher strings with a delay effect. A metal pick works even better, i.e. a dime)

Out on the road today, I saw a Dead Head sticker on a Cadillac
A little voice Inside my head said, "Don't look back. You can never look back."
I thought I knew what love was
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go but-

Repeat Chorus: (2X)

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got that top pulled down and that radio on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got that hair slicked back and those Wayfarers on, baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Outro: 
(Perhaps played by two guitars (2 tracks), but very easily done with one.)
(The first time through play the first bar, and 2nd time play the 2nd bar)
