Verse 1:

	[Notes: 1) I believe that the guitar is capoed at the third fret,
	 in which case the chord progression transposes to the stock folkie
	 riff Am-Am/G-D9/F#-Fmaj7-E.  This is further confirmed by the
	 voicings of the F and Bb chords in the chorus, which sound like
	 root-position D and G capoed up.  2) The electric piano plays a
	 variation of the second part of the instrumental break (q.v.) on
	 the first four lines of the verse.]

	Cm        Cm/Bb
	Hot town, summer in the city
	F9/A [x03543]           Abmaj7        G
	Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
	Cm         Cm/Bb
	Been down, isn't it a pity
	F9/A                 Abmaj7          G
	Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city

	 G          G7/B
	All around, people looking half dead
	 Cm                       C
	Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head

Chorus (w/autoharp):

	F                   Bb
	But at night it's a different world
	F          Bb
	Go out and find a girl
	F                   Bb
	Come-on come-on and dance all night
	F                      Bb
	Despite the heat it'll be alright

	    Dm               G
	And babe, don't you know it's a pity
		 Dm         G
	That the days can't be like the nights
	       Dm              G
	In the summer, in the city
	       Dm              G
	In the summer, in the city

Verse 2:

	Cool town, evening in the city
	Dressing so fine and looking so pretty
	Cool cat, looking for a kitty
	Gonna look in every corner of the city
	Till I'm wheezing like a bus stop
	Running up the stairs, gonna meet you on the rooftop

[repeat chorus]

Instrumental break:

	guitar (doubled octave higher w/electric piano) w/sound effects
