Intro: (D#5)  (B5)  (C#5)  (B5)  (F#5)

(D#5) Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
(B5) I feel it in the air
The summer's out of reach
(C#5) Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
(B5) I'm drivin' by your house
Though I know you're not at home

  (F#) But I can see you-
  Your (C#) brown skin shinin' in the sun
  You got your hair combed back and your (B) sunglasses on, baby
  (F#) And I can tell you my (C#) love for you will still be strong
  After the boys of (B) summer have gone

(D#5) I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
(B5) Remember how you made me crazy?
Remember how I made you scream
(C#5) Now I don't understand what happened to our love
(B5) But babe, I'm gonna get you back
I'm gonna show you what I'm made of

  (F#) I can see you-
  (C#) Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
  I see you walkin' real slow and you're (B) smilin' at everyone
  (F#) I can tell you my (C#) love for you will still be strong
  After the boys of (B) summer have gone

Instrumental

(D#5) Out on the road today, I saw a 'DEAD-HEAD' sticker on a Cadillac
(B) A little voice inside my head said, "Don't look back. You can never look back."
(C#) I thought I knew what love was
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
(B) I should just let them go but-

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

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

good job, but if you wanna be exact that D#5 is actually a D#m.
keep up the good work though, i like to see people send in chords
like this.

I agree that it is a D#m...you can play it either way
you want to. I just like the sound of the power
chord, instead of the complete chord.
