Intro…D…………….G…F#m…A..
 
Step inside the shoes I walk in
D……………...…F#….....…A…..
Walk them down onto a pasture
D…………....G…F#m…....A…..
Where the green may have been yellow
D…………...G…..……..F#…..……..A…
But the music will remember
D………..G….F#m…...A…….
In the summer of love
Bm……………..F#m…G..A..
In the summer of love
Bm……………...F#m….G..A…
In the summer of love
Bm………………..F#…F#m…G..A…
 
D……………………………….....
G….F#m…A..D…
 
Where we raged and reached for freedom
D…………..G……….....D…………..A……
When we kissed and loved a stranger
D……….....G…………………..A…..D…
And we asked our silly questions
D……….G………F#m….A……D..
And would not settle for the reasons
D……………..…G………..……A….
 

Did we rise up to the cause
Bm…………..F#m………..
Or did we cause the thing to happen?
G……………………..Em...……A……
When humanity awakens
B…….....G………….A…..E..A…D..
Ah but the music will remember
D…………....G….F#……A……
In …the summer of love
Bm…F#……………F#m..G….A…
In the summer of love
Bm……………..…F#..G…A…
In the summer of love
Bm……………....F#m…G…A..
 
D………………………………
G………F#m…….A………D…..
 

There's a power on a hillside
D…………………..……A….
There was magic in the moment
D…………..G……....……D..A…D…
It's a farm land that lies fallow
D……G………..D………A….D…
But the dream grows on forever
D………..G………..F#m….A….
 

Cynics laugh….. ….and make it less than
Bm……….C#m..F#……………………..G..
The extraordinary wonder
G…………………...A…..F#m…Bm..
When humanity awakens
Bm……..G………...A……E..D.
Ah but the music will remember
D…………...G...………….A……
In the summer of love
Bm……………..F#m..G…A…
In the summer of love
B………………..F#m..F#..G..A..E..
In the summer of love
Bm……………...F#m…F#..G..A..
 
D…………………………..
F#m…..G………A…….
 
When humanity awakens
Bm………………....D.…..E…
Then the music will remember
E……………….Em……A……
