	      D               A/C#            Bm7                 A
		Your ever lastin' summer, you can see it fadin' fast,
	      D                       A/C#            Bm7                 A
		So you grab a piece of somethin' that you think is gonna last.
      C#/E                          C/Eb          B/D           A/C#
	Well, you wouldn't even know a diamond if you held it in your hand;
	      D                     A/C#            Bm7            A
		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 :

    Em7                    B/D#             Dm7                A/C#
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.

Chord shapes :

   EADGBE     EADGBE    EADGBE    EADGBE
   x79787     x6987x    x57565    x4765x

    Em7        B/D#       Dm7      A/C#

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

		CHORUS


	      D                     A/C#         Bm7            A

	      D                     A/C#      Bm7                A
