Michael Ray – Summer Water Chords and Lyrics

Artist : Michael Ray
Song : Summer Water

[Intro] : A E7sus4

[Verse 1] : 
A                                      E7sus4
Sometimes that lake got angry, as the lightnin' went and crashed
A                              E7sus4
Sometimes it was so still, it looked like a sheet of glass
A                                   E7sus4
But it washed away our beer cans, and it washed away our sins
A                                         E7sus4
It talked us out of all our clothes, and begged us to jump in

[Chorus] : 
A                        D
There was magic in the summer water
                        A
Learned to swim in the summer water
                     E
All the small town sons and daughters
        A                    A7
Were baptized a thousand times
                  D
Built fire by it like an altar
                   A
Gave it every song we could offer
                     E
Memories float on it like a bobber
                  A          E7sus4  A  E7sus4
Out there on the summer water

[Verse 2] : 
A                                              E7sus4
When a heart was broken, it was better than a church pew sanctuary
           A                                               E7sus4
A lot of long kiss, rocks skip, sun drenched orange crush bottle caps got buried
                            A                                            E7sus4
It's where you spend your first night with your first love before the mercury starts fallin'
                         A                                    E7sus4
It's where you spend the last with your first love, before somebody goes to college

[Chorus] : 
            A           D
There was magic in the summer water
                        A
Learned to swim in the summer water
                    E
All the small town sons and daughters
        A                     A7
Were baptized a thousand times
                  D
Built fire by it like an altar
                   A
Gave it every song we could offer
                      E
Memories float on it like a bobber
                   A
Out there on the summer water

[Solo] : D A E

[Verse 3] : 
                                D
There was somethin' 'bout the summer water
                    A
Every girl that's where you brought her
                             E
It's where you slipped that ring you bought her
        A
On her shakin' hand
                  D
Built fire by it like an altar
                    A
Gave it every song we could offer
                      E
Memories float on it like a bobber
                   A          E7sus4  A  E7sus4
Out there on the summer water

[Outro] : 
                 A
Yeah out on the summer water
