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


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


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


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


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


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


[Solo]
Gm  F#  A#  F#  2x


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


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


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