Note: This can be played without a capo, but I prefer playing the intro
with a capo.

Intro:
     Dsus2     Dsus2/G   Dsus2/F#  Dsus2/E

    (D)       (G)       (F#)      (E)

For the verses, strum over the intro riff chords.
Notes in brackets denote the bass note of each chord:

Verse 1:
(D)          (G)           (F#)            (E)            (D)
   On certain Sundays in November when the weather bothers me
       (G)               (F#)            (E)               (D)
I empty drawers of other summers where my shadows used to be
            (G)            (F#)         (E)              (D)
And she is standing by the water as her smile begins to curl
           (G)       (F#)           Em
In this or any other summer she is something altogether different
Em                    (D)     (G)   (F#)  (E)
Never just an ordinary girl  [riff]


Verse 2:
(D)          (G)              (F#)            (E)                (D)
   And in the evenings on Long Island when the colours start to fade
           (G)           (F#)             (E)                   (D)
She wears a silly yellow hat that someone gave her when she stayed
        (G)              (F#)              (E)              (D)
I didn't think that she returned it we left New York in a whirl
      (G)                 (F#)               Em
Time expands and then contracts when you are spinning in the grips of
        Em                      G
someone who is not an ordinary girl


Chorus 1:
          A                  D                G
When you sleep you find your mother in the night
        D                 G
But she stays just out of sight
         D         F#m               A
So there isn't any sweetness in the dreaming
G              A                D               G
 And when you wake the morning covers you with light
        D               G
And it makes you feel alright
         D                  F#m             A           Dsus2 (to riff)
But it's just the same hard candy you're remembering again

(intro riff once)


Verse 3:
(D)               (G)          (F#)          (E)              (D)
   You send your lover off to China then you wait for her to call
             (G)            (F#)            (E)               (D)
You put your girl up on a pedestal then you wait for her to fall
         (G)                (F#)         (E)                 (D)
I put my summer's back in a letter and I hide it from the world
           (G)                (F#)           Em
All the regrets you can't forget are somehow pressed upon a picture
       Em                       G
In the face of such an ordinary girl


Chorus 2:
              A                  D                G
And when you sleep you find your mother in the night
        D                 G
But she stays just out of sight
         D         F#m               A
So there isn't any sweetness in the dreaming
G              A                 D               G
 And when you wake the morning showers you with light
        D               G
And it makes you feel alright
         D                  F#m             A           D
But it's just the same hard candy you're remembering again
      G      Em    A
Again, again,  again
     D                   G              A          D
It's just the same hard candy you're remembering again
      G      Em    A
Again, again,  again
         D                   G              A
And it's just the same hard candy you're remembering again

Outro: (with riff)
(D)          (C#)              (C)           (G)
   Go ask her    to come around   and see me late after dark
(D)            (C#)              (C)            (G)
   Don't ask me    to come around   then wait to see if there's a spark
(D)          (C#)              (C)           (G)
   Go ask her    to come around   and see me late after dark
(D)            (C#)              (C)            (G)
   Don't ask me    to come around   and make me wait to see the spark
(D)          (C#)              (C)         (G)
   Go ask her    to come around   late and see me after dark
(D)            (C#)              (C)           (G)
   Don't ask me    to come around   and wait to see if there is a spark
