Summer of Love (song lyrics/acoustic guitar)

Song Lyrics


*acoustic guitar*(capo 2nd fret_Em_A_D)
Your music fills my heart like a symphony
Your kiss intoxicating like wine
   the fire of passion is burning
burning bright in your eyes.
  Run away with me baby
We could live ocean side
And sleep underneath the moonlight baby
you and i ..
my hippie gypsie baby 
Like the summer of 1969
ocean swimming naked at midnight
and afterwards by the fire
Listening to all the blue waves crashing
Looking up at the sky
Waking up in the sun bleached sand, baby...
Peace and Love in Paradise
Peace and love is Paradise
Youre love is my Paradise
Author's Notes/Comments: 

Other chord progessions are interchangeable.....just improvise.

Tempo is interchangeable....

   Strum pattern would be  d-d-d-u-d.....d-u-u-u-d

Or alternating  with a finger-pick  here and there.

These lyrics are visually

These lyrics are visually arresting.. and the sexiness of this is palpable... it reminds of me of an amalgamation of Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, and Bob Dylan... I just see them singing this

 Dylan and Clapton are a huge inspiration to me!
