Your ever lastin' summer, you can see it fadin' fast,

So you grab a piece of somethin' that you think is gonna last.

Well, you wouldn't even know a diamond if you held it in your hand;

The things you think are precious I can't understand.

This is what I dug out from Nevada. The first two lines are fine...

But C#/E , C/Eb etc for the third and fourth lines ?????

If you try these chords, they sound pretty weird. C# with an E bass ?

If you try E with a C# bass it's almost right though I prefer these chorts :

you wouldn't even know a diamond if you held it in your hand

Probably it was a slip up when it was typed in, cos' everything except this

line is Ok.

Title: REELIN' IN THE YEARS (Steely Dan)

Your ever lastin' summer, you can see it fadin' fast,

So you grab a piece of somethin' that you think is gonna last.

Well, you wouldn't even know a diamond if you held it in your hand;

The things you think are precious I can't understand.

Chorus

Are you reelin' in the years, stowin away the time?

| Are you gatherin' up the tears, have you had enough of mine

| Are you reelin' in the years, stowin away the time?

| Are you gatherin' up the tears, have you had enough of mine

You been tellin' me you're a genius since you were seventeen;

In all the time I've known you I still don't know what you mean.

The weekend at the college didn't turn out like you planned;

The things that pass for knowledge I can't understand.

CHORUS

I've spent a lit of money and I spent a lot of time;

The trip we made to Hollywood is etched upon my mind.

After all the things we've done and seen you find another man;

The things you think are useless I can't understand.

CHORUS

\_ \_ \_ \_ \_ \_ \_ \_

\_ \_ \_ \_ \_ \_ \_ \_ \_ \_

All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain.
