A/F# 
It was a hot afternoon,
 
the  
E 
last day of June,
 
and the
B7 
sun was a demon.
 
The  
A/F# 
clouds were afraid,
 
one  
E 
ten in the shade,
 
and the  
B7 
pavement was steamin’
 
I  
A/F# 
told Billy Ray
 
in his red Chevro-
E 
let,
 
I needed time for some  
B7 
thinkin’.
 
I was  
A/F# 
just walking by
 
when I  
E 
looked in her eye,
 
and I swore it was  
B7 
winkin’.
 
D 
She was thirty-one, and I was
Bm 
seventeen,
C#m 
I knew nothing about love, she kne
F#m 
w everything.
 
But
D 
I sat down beside her on that  
Bm 
front porch swing,
 
and  
C#7 
wondered what the coming night woul
F#m 
d bring.
 
A/F# 
The sun closed her eyes
 
as it  
E 
climbed in the skies,
 
and it  
B7 
started to swelter.
 
The  
A/F# 
sweat trickled down
 
the  
E 
front of her gown,
 
I  
B7 
thought it would melt her.
 
She
A/F# 
threw back her hair
 
like  
E 
I wasn’t there,
 
she  
B7 
sipped on a Julep.
 
Her  
A/F# 
shoulders were bare,
 
and I  
E 
tried not to stare,
 
when I  
B7 
looked at her two lips.
 
D 
And when she looked at me, I heard  
Bm 
her softly say,
 
‘I  
C#m7 
know you’re young, you don’t know w
F#m 
hat to do or say.
 
But  
D 
stay with me until the sun has  
Bm 
gone 
 
away,
 
and  
C#7 
I will chase the boy in you  
F#m 
a- way.
 
 
D/B 
And then she smiled, then we
 
talked for a while,
 
and we  
C#m7 
walked for a mile to t
F# 
he sea.
 
We  
D/B 
sat on the sand, and the
 
boy took her hand,
 
but he  
C#m7 
saw the sun rise as
F# 
a man.

A/F# 
Ten years have gone by
 
since I
E 
looked in her eyes,
 
but the
B7 
memory 
 
lingers.
 
I go  
A/F# 
back in my mind
 
to the  
E 
very first time,
 
feel the
B7 
touch of her fingers.
 
It was a  
A/F# 
hot 
 
afternoon,
 
the
E 
last day of June,
 
and the  
B7 
sun was a demon…
