"The Boys of Summer" as written by and Don/campbell Henley....
Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
Summer's out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
I'm driving by hour house
Though I know you're not home

[Chorus]
But I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got your hair combed back now
Sunglasses on baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer, have gone

I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how you made me crazy
Remember how I made you scream
Now I don't understand what happened to our love
But babe I'm gonna get you back
I'm gonna show you what I'm made of

[Chorus]
I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
I see ya walkin' real slow
Smiling at everyone
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer, have gone

Out on the road today
I saw a dead head sticker on a cadilac
A little voice inside my head said, don't look back, you should never look back
I thought I knew what love was
What did I know
Those days are gone forever
I should just let 'em go but,

[Chorus]
I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got the top pulled down
Radio on baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer, have gone

[Chorus]
I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got your hair slicked back and it's
Wavy and long baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer, have gone
