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.
