    Was a hot afternoon
    The last day of June
    And the sun was a demon

    The clouds were afraid
    One ten in the shade
    And the pavement was steaming

    I told Billy Ray
    In his red Chevrolet
    Needed time for some thinking

    I was just walking by
    When I looked in her eye
    And I swore it was winking

    She was thirty-one and I was seventeen
    I knew nothing about love, she knew everything
    But I sat down beside her on the front porch swing
    And wondered what the coming night would bring

    The sun closed her eyes
    As it climbed in the skies
    And it started to swelter

    The sweat trickled down
    The front of her gown
    And I thought it would melt her

    She threw back her hair
    Like I wasn't there
    She sipped on a Julep

    Her shoulders were bare
    And I tried not to stare
    When I looked at her two lips

    Then she looked at me, I heard her softly say
    "I know you're young, you don't know what to do or say
    But stay with me until the sun has gone away
    And I will chase the boy in you away."

    And then she smiled
    And we talked for a while
    Then we walked for a mile to the sea
    We sat on the sand
    And the boy took her hand
    But I saw the sun rise as a man


    Ten years have gone by
    Since I looked in her eye
    But the memory lingers

    I go back in my mind
    To the very first time
    And the touch of her fingers

    (Repeat first two verses and fade)
