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.
