Let Me Sit In The Shade


Let me sit in the shade,
Of this live oak tree.
Where ole brother Sol,
Can't get to me.

Hiding neath the leaves,
On a hot summer's day.
My eyes start to close,
As I drift away.

Relaxing in the shadows,
Of the defused light,
With a glass of ice water,
Longing for the night.

Another long afternoon,
In my ole lazy chair.
As the south wind blows,
Gently through my hair.

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
