Intro
A   D      E      D  C#m  Bm

                            A
I went to work for her that summer
                          F#m
A teenage kid so far from home
                       D
She was a lonely widow woman
                            E      Esus4     E
Hell bent to make it on her own

                               A      Asus2   A
We were a thousands miles from nowhere
                               F#m
Wheat fields as far as I could see
                                D     Dus2   E
Both needing something from each other
                                A
Not knowing yet what that might be

                         A      
Till she came to me one evening
                         F#m
Hot cup of coffee and a smile
 	  	  	  D
In a dress that I was certain
                           E 	    Esus4    E
She hadn't worn in quite a while

                                A     Asus2    A
There was a difference in her laughter
                             F#m
There was a softness in her eyes
                            D      Dsus2    E
And on the air there was a hunger
                      A
Even a boy could recognize

Chorus
                           E          D
She had a need to feel the thunder
                                A     Asus2    A
To chase the lightning from the sky
                                D      Dsus2    D
To watch the storm and all it's wonders
                     E    Esus4   E
Raging in her lovers eyes
                            F#m     E    D
She had to ride the heat of passion
                     A    Asus2   A
Like a comet burning bright
                        D
Rushing headlong in the wind
               Dsus2       E
Out where only dreams have been
                         A
Burning both ends of the night

                             A
That summer wind was all around me
                            F#m
Nothing between us but the night
                             D
And when I told her that I'd never
                            E      Esus4   E
She softly whispered that's alright
                               
                                A      Asus2   A
And then I watched her hands of leather
                       F#m
Turn to velvet in a touch
                           D     Dsus2     E 
There's never been another summer
                            A
When I have ever learned so much


Chorus


A    Asus2    A


                           A
I often think about that summer
                              F#m 
The sweat the moonlight and the lace
                         D
And I have rarely held another
                         E     Esus4   E
When I haven't seen her face
  
                         A    Asus2   A
And everytime I pass a wheat field
                               F#m
And watch it dancing in the wind
                          D     
Although I know it isn't real
            Dsus2      E           
I just can't help but feel
                  A
Her hungry arms again


Chorus

                        D
Rushing headlong in the wind
               Dsus2       E
Out where only dreams have been
                         A
Burning both ends of the night


A     D     E     D  C#m  Bm
