Hot Hot August Night
Lyrics
Copyright © 2008 Jim Ferrie Music

End of July my work here's thru'
And I've been countin' the days when I''ll be comin' home to you
When my mission here is done
Full speed under a burning sun

(I'll be) Drivn' thru' a hot hot August day
To get home to a hot hot August night
And this time I'm comin' home to stay
Comin home to kiss and hold you tight

And we'll be makin' love.....
On a hot hot August night

This separation's killin' me
But it's nearly done and I've provided for my family
It's been oh, such a long long time
Since I last held your hand in mine

(I'll be) Drivn' thru' a hot hot August day
To get home to a hot hot August night
And this time I'm comin' home to stay
Comin home to kiss and hold you tight

I've travelled far and wide to chase the buck back home to you
But all the money in the world can't buy me the best of life with you

(I'll be) Drivn' thru' a hot hot August day
To get home to a hot hot August night
And this time I'm comin' home to stay
Comin home to kiss and hold you tight

And we'll be makin' love.....
On a hot hot August night
