The Summer WindWords & Music by Hans Bradtke & Henry Mayer
English lyrics by Johnny Mercer Recorded by Frank Sinatra, 1966 (#25)
D DM7 Cdim (B7) Em7 A9 A7 The summer wind came blowin' in across the sea, Em B+ Em7 A9 DM7 D6 It lingered there to touch your hair and walk with me; Am7 D7 D D9 D7 G G/F# C9 Gdim All summer long we sang a song and strolled in golden sand, D Bm7-5 Em7 A7 DM7 D6 Em7 A7 Two sweethearts and the summer wind. D DM7 Cdim B7 Em7 A9 A7 Like painted kites, the days and nights went flying by; Em B+ Em7 Em6 DM7 D6 The world was new beneath a blue umbrella sky. Am7 D7 D9 G G/F# C9 Gdim Then softer than a piper man, one day it called to you - D Bm7 -5 Em7 A7 DM7 B7 I lost you to the summer wind. (Key change to E) E E+7 E7 Fdim F#m7 B7 The autumn wind, the winter winds have come and gone; F#m B7 Fdim B7 E9 E E6 E And still the days, the lonely days, go on and on. Edim E7 Bm7-5 E7 A AM7 D9 Cdim And guess who sighs his lul-la-bies though nights that never end? E C#m7-5 F#m B7 E E+7 F#m B7 My fickle friend, the summer wind. Coda: E E+7 F#m B7 E E+7 F#m B7 E9 The summer wind, the summer wind.
