																				This song appears on Baysides Acoustic album, and I really wanted to know how to play
it so I looked at the Smoking Popes Tab for it. It was in a different  key so I
transposed it for anyone else who wants to learn it.

INTRO A Ab/A F# F#/G X2

A           A/Ab

Butter on a summer day
F#

When she's around
F#/Ab

I was on the tracks
D

When the gate came down
A            A/Ab

Suddenly I recognized
F#                         F#/Ab         D     
Those bloodshot rearview mirror eyes as mine



    

F#m            E                D

  I heard that whistle call my name
F#m            E      D

  I almost drove away

Chorus:
          Am  C#

But Megan I 
       E               F#m                 B

had a feeling that you would be on that train
          D                 E

So I just waited there for you

A                 A/Ab

Caught a ride to another town
F#

Where the air was clean
F#/Ab                 D

And the sun never goes down
A                  A/Ab

Everyone was standing in a line
F#                  F#/Ab      D

Between the landing and the stairs

F#m           E             D

  I heard somebody call my name
F#m           E             D

  I almost climbed the stairs
           Am C#

But Megan I
       E                 F#m             B    
had a feeling that someday you'd meet me there
          D                  E

So I just waited there for you

SOLO: Chorus Chords x2

A            A/Ab

Butter on a summer day
F#

When I hear that name
F#/Ab                         D

It's a dream that never came true
A             A/Ab

Sat down on the tracks
F#                      F#/Ab            D

And waited for a train to take me back to you

F#m              E            D

  Somebody came and took my hand
F#m            E      D

  I finally had to go
            Am  C#   
But Megan I 
     E         F#m     B

just want you to know
          D                  E

That I waited as long as I could
A              A/Ab     F#

Butter on a summer day when she's around

Butter on a summer day when she's around
I was on the tracks when the gates came down
And suddenly I recognized those bloodshot rearview mirror eyes as mine
And I heard that whistle call my name
And I almost drove away
But Megan I had a feeling that you would be on that train
So I just waited there for you

Caught a ride to another town
Where the air was clean and the sun never goes down
Everyone was standing in a line in between the landing and the stairs
I heard somebody call my name
I almost climbed the stairs
But Megan I had a feeling that someday you'd meet me there
So I just waited there for you

Butter on a summer day when I hear your name, it's a dream that never came true
So I sat down on the tracks and waited for a train to take me back to you
And somebody came and took my hand
And I finally had to go
But Megan I just want you to know that I waited as long as I could

I'm butter on a summer day when she's around...
