[G]Volkswagon bus she drives
down the [C]coast
[G]Surfboard on a rack
Sand between her [C]toes

[Em]Some days she just [C/E]watches
waves roll [D]in
[Em]Wondering how
[C/E]love might [D]begin

Summer's [G]Gone[C]
Summer’s [G]Gone[C]

She knows that life is
Like a redwood seed
Planted deep
What will she achieve?

Roots find balance
Branches stretch into the sky
Rain gives her strength
The sun helps her shine

Summer's Gone
Summer's Gone

[Am]Summer’s gone, she feels [Bm]pages turn
[Am]Where her life is now, where her [Bm]past is blurred
[Am]Summer's gone, but, of course, the [Bm]world still spins
To the [Em]beauty of her [C/E]happiness with[D]in

The desert calls
so she turns east
Cactus tall
Sunsets give her peace

A campfire embraces her heart
every night
Billions of stars reflect
her twinkling eyes

Summer's gone
Summer's gone

So she feels
what she finds
Coyotes sing with her
in rhyme

She may be alone
but she's not lonely
A smile warms her face
Because Autumn is coming

Summer's gone
Summer's gone
Summer's gone
Summer's gone
Summer's gone
