Summer In The City. (Revised)
Joe Cocker.
Album: Have A Little Faith.

Intro: Dm Bb Dm Bb Dm Bb Dm Bb7 A7 
Dm        Dm/C          
Hot town, summer in the city,
Dm/B                    Bbmaj7/E
Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty,
Dm         Dm/C
Been down, isn't it a pity?
Dm/B                 Bbmaj7/E      
Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city,
A                 A7     
All around people looking half-dead,
Dm                       
Walking on the sidewalk, 
D/F#
Hotter than a match head.

G                   Cmaj7         
But at night it's a different world,
G          Cmaj7
Go out and find a girl,
G                    Cmaj7             
Come on, come on and dance all night,
G                      Cmaj7    
Despite the heat it'll be alright,
    Em              A
And babe, don't you know it's a pity,
    Em            A
The days can't be like the nights,
       Em            A
In the summer in the city,
       Em            A   Dm Bb A7
In the summer in the city,

Dm         Dm/C
Cool town, evening in the city,
Dm/B                Bbmaj7/E     
Dressed so fine and looking so pretty,
Dm        Dm/C
Cool cat, looking for a kitty,
Dm/B                Bbmaj7/E  
Gonna look in every corner of the city,
A                  A7
Until I'm wheezing at the bus stop,
Dm                        
Running up the stairs 
      D/F#
Gonna meet, ya on the roof-top.

G                   Cmaj7         
But at night it's a different world,
G          Cmaj7      
Go out and find a girl,
     G               Cmaj7            
Come on, come on and dance all night,
G                      Cmaj7   
Despite the heat it'll be alright,
    Em              A
And babe, don't you know it's a pity,
    Em            A
The days can't be like the nights,
       Em            A
In the summer in the city,
       Em            A    
In the summer in the city.

Break: (similar to first half of verses ends with A & F)

D             G            Cmaj7
Aargh, but at night it's a different world,
G          Cmaj7      
Go out and find a girl,
G                    Cmaj7
Come on, come on and dance all night,
G                      Cmaj7
Despite the heat it'll be alright,
    Em              A
And babe, don't you know it's a pity,
    Em            A
The days can't be like the nights,
       Em            A
In the summer in the city,
       Em            A
In the summer in the city,
       Em            A   F#m B F#m 
In the summer in the city
B                 F#m B F#m B
Summer in the city,
Em      Bm A/C# C B             Em  Bm A/C# C 
Hot town,         summer in the city,
Em       Bm A/C# C B              Em  Bm A/C# C   B Em Bm
Cool town,         evening in the city,       aargh,
           A/C#      C         B         Em    Bm
Never ever found love, getting dirty and gritty,
              A/C# C
Living in the city, 
B      Em              Bm A/C# C
In the summer time babe,
B                   Em         Bm       A/C#
Summer in the city, cool town, cool girl,
A/C#            B             Em
Have fun, yeah, living in the city.

(Been a bit of a task this, but confident
it is much nearer than the previous post.)
