Summer Days

Summer days, summer nights are gone

Summer days and the summer nights are gone

I know a place where there's still somethin' going on

.

I got a house on a hill, I got hogs all out on in the mud

I got a house on a hill, I got hogs out lying in the mud

Got a long haired woman, she got royal Indian blood

.

Everybody get ready - lift up your glasses and sing

Everybody get ready to lift up your glasses and sing

Well, I'm standin' on the table, I'm proposing a toast to the King

.

Well I'm drivin' in the flats in a Cadillac car

The girls all say, "You're a worn out star"

My pockets are loaded and I'm spending every dime

How can you say you love someone else when you know it's me all the time?

.

Well, the fog's so thick you can't spy the land

The fog is so thick that you can't even spy the land

What good are you anyway, if you can't stand up to some old businessman?

.

Wedding bells ringin', the choir is beginning to sing

Yes, the wedding bells are ringing and the choir is beginning to sing

What looks good in the day, at night is another thing

.

She's looking into my eyes, she's holding my hand

She's looking into my eyes, she's holding my hand

She says, "You can't repeat the past." I say, "You can't? What do you mean, you can't? Of course you can."

.

Where do you come from? Where do you go?

Sorry that's nothin' you would need to know

Well, my back has been to the wall for so long, it seems like it's stuck

Why don't you break my heart one more time just for good luck

.

I got eight carburetors, boys I'm using 'em all

Well, I got eight carburetors and boys, I'm using 'em all

I'm short on gas, my motor's starting to stall

.

My dogs are barking, there must be someone around

My dogs are barking, there must be someone around

I got my hammer ringin', pretty baby, but the nails ain't goin' down

.

You got something to say, speak or hold your peace

Well, you got something to say, speak now or hold your peace

If it's information you want you can go get it from the police

.

Politician got on his jogging shoes

He must be running for office, got no time to lose

He been suckin' the blood out of the genius of generosity

You been rolling your eyes - you been teasing me

.

Standing by God's river, my soul is beginnin' to shake

Standing by God's river, my soul is beginnin' to shake

I'm countin' on you love, to give me a break

.

Well, I'm leaving in the morning as soon as the dark clouds lift

Yes, I'm leaving in the morning just as soon as the dark clouds lift

Gonna break the roof in - set fire to the place as a parting gift

.

Summer days, summer nights are gone

Summer days, summer nights are gone

I know a place where there's still somethin' going on

.
