[Verse]
G                           Em
It's comin' on the end of August
G                               Em
Another summer's promise almost gone
              C
And though I heard some wise man say
            G
That every dog will have his day
    F                                         Am    D
He never mentioned that these dog days get so long


[Verse]
G                                           Em     G
I don't know when I realized the dream was over
                 Em
Well, there was no particular hour, no given day
               C
You know, it didn't go down in flame
               G
There was no final scene, no frozen frame
F                              Am    D
I just watched it slowly fade away


[Chorus]
   Em                         G
And I've been waiting in the weeds
               Am             C
Waiting for my time to come around again and
Em                         G
Hope is floating on the breeze
             Am            C
Carrying my soul high up above the ground and
Em                     G
I've been keepin' to myself Knowin'
            Am         C
that the seasons are slowly changing
Em                                G
Even though you're with somebody else
                      Am            C
He'll never love you like I do


[Verse]
G                                         Em
I've been biding time with the crows and sparrows
G                                         Em
While peacocks prance and strut upon the stage
             C                      G
If finding love is just a dance. Proximity and chance
           F                           Am       D
You will excuse me if I skip the masquerade


[Chorus]
Em                             G
And I've been waiting in the weeds
                 Am            C
Waiting for the dust to settle down along the
Em                               G
Back roads running through the fields
                Am                C
Lying on the outskirts of this lonesome town
Em                              G
And I imagine sunlight in your hair
                      Am
You're at the county fair
                  C
You're holding hands and laughing
Em                              G
And now the ferris wheel has stopped


[Chorus - key change]
                       Bm
You're swinging on the top
            F#
Suspended there with him
G                            D
And he's the darling of the sheik
                   Bm       F#
The flavor of the week is melting
G                        D
Down your pretty summer dress
               F#
Baby, what a mess you're making


[Solo]
Bm  A#  D  A#  2x


[Verse]
Bm                               A#
I've been stumbling through some dark places
D                     A#
Now I'm following the plow
Bm                             A#
I know I've fallen out of your good graces
Am            D
It's alright now


[Chorus]
Em                            G
And I've been waiting in the weeds
                  Am           C
Waiting for the summer rain to fall upon the
Em                            G
Wild birds scattering the seeds
                  Am           C
Answering the calling of the tide's eternal tune
Em                 G
The phases of the moon
                  Am
The chambers of the heart
             C
The ebb and dart of small gray
  Em                     G
Spiders spinning in the dark
                      Am                    C
In spite of all the times the web is torn apart


[Chorus]
   Em                        G
And I've been waiting in the weeds
                 Am           C
Waiting for the time to come around again and
  Em                      G
Hope is floating on the breeze
Am                         C
Carrying my soul high up above the ground and
  Em                   G
I've been keeping to myself
  Am                            C
Knowing that the seasons are slowly changing
  Em                       G
Even though you're with somebody else
 Am                         G
He'll never love you like I do

Ohhh   Ahhh
