[Verse 1]
       G                      Em  
Your shades on my dashboard, shoes on my floorboard
 Bm                      C 
Lived in that old Chevrolet
         G                  Em  
We were two Roman candles, too hot to handle
Bm                           C 
Two hearts that couldn't be tamed

[Pre-Chorus]
          G             Em  
Yeah, we knew what was comin’
               Bm               C      
And laughed it off like it was nothin'
         G            Em                  Bm 
Oh, but time kept on runnin' and runnin’ away

[Chorus]

Yeah, what can I say?
            G                Em  
We had our hopes up and the windows down
Bm                   C 
..Fallin' fast in a one-lane town
G                       Em  
..Tangled up with your lips on mine
Bm                        C  
..Never seen a brighter green in those eyes and
G                         Em   
I put my jacket on your shoulder
Bm                            C
..Wishin' the weather wasn't gettin' colder
 G                       Em
Lettin' you go, holdin' onto each other
 Bm                         C             G  
Closin' our eyes, sayin’, "Slow down, summer"
 Em            Bm  C
(Slow down, summer)...

[Verse 2]
       G                                Em   
I was beggin’ those leaves, "Don't go changin’ on me"
  Bm                         C  
"Friday night lights, stay away"
          G                       Em  
But the Fourth of July was just smoke in the sky
         Bm                        C  
And our sunburns were startin' to fade

[Pre-Chorus]
          G             Em  
Yeah, we knew what was comin'
               Bm               C 
And laughed it off like it was nothin'
         G            Em                  Bm  
Oh, but time kept on runnin’ and runnin' away

[Chorus]

Yeah, those were the days
            G                Em  
We had our hopes up and the windows down
Bm                   C 
..Fallin' fast in a one-lane town
G                       Em  
..Tangled up with your lips on mine
Bm                        C  
..Never seen a brighter green in those eyes and
G                         Em   
I put my jacket on your shoulder
Bm                            C
..Wishin' the weather wasn't gettin' colder
 G                       Em
Lettin' you go, holdin' onto each other
 Bm                         C             G  
Closin' our eyes, sayin’, "Slow down, summer"
 Em            Bm  C
(Slow down, summer)...

[Bridge]
                  G          Em
Why couldn't you slow down, summer?
             Bm                 C  
Just wait a minute, we weren't finished
             G              Em  
Can we just hold onto each other?
         Bm            C        G  Em 
Take me back to the beginnin', oh......
             Bm   C  G  Em
Slow down, summer...........
              Bm  C
Slow down, summer....

[Chorus]
Yeah, those were the days
            G                Em  
We had our hopes up and the windows down
Bm                   C 
..Fallin' fast in a one-lane town
G                       Em  
..Tangled up with your lips on mine
Bm                        C  
..Never seen a brighter green in those eyes and
G                         Em   
I put my jacket on your shoulder
Bm                            C
..Wishin' the weather wasn't gettin' colder
 G                       Em
Lettin' you go, holdin' onto each other
 Bm                         C             G  
Closin' our eyes, sayin’, "Slow down, summer"

[Outro]
G Em                 Bm C
Oh...(Slow down, summer)...
               G  Em   Bm  C
Slow down, summer,....yeah....
                   G         Em Bm  C 
Why couldn't you slow down, summer?...
                   G   Em  Bm  C
Why couldn't you slow down?.....
 G    Em Bm  C
Slow down......
                   G         Em Bm  C
Why couldn't you slow down, summer?...
