Sara Watkins – Long Hot Summer Days lyrics
Gonna pick up some of them empties here
Just as soon as we know where they lay
Tied off of them jolly and leaving lines
On a long hot summer day
For every day I work on the Illinois River
Get a half a day off with pay
All day long I'm makin' up barges
On a long hot summer day

Well I got me a gal in Pekin
She's a good ol' gal okay
I bet she's sitting a window fan
On a long hot summer day
For every day I work on the Illinois River
Get a half a day off with pay
All day long I'm makin' up barges
On a long hot summer day

Last night we had port for supper
Today it'll be chicken consomme
And a fruit jar full of iced tea
On a long hot summer day
For every day I work on the Illinois River
Get a half a day off with pay
All day long I'm makin' up barges
On a long hot summer day

Well we put a man off in Beardstown
When we come down yesterday
I'm gonna off down at Alton
On a long hot summer day
For every day I work on the Illinois River
Get a half a day off with pay
All day long I'm makin' up barges
On a long hot summer day
