lyrics

Heat of July
© & Ⓟ 2015 Claire Chamblin Holley/Olivia’s Attic Music (ASCAP)


If God from dust did make a man
She would make one too by damn

She was strong and duty bound
Piano scales went up and down

Sweat til you shine
You sit til you get it right
In the heat of July, the heat of July

Questions came there by her side
God and All Things you replied

On a porch screened in from flies
Your quick mind made her smile

Sweat til you shine
You sit til you get it right
In the heat of July, the heat of July


You could smell that southern rain
on a porch your daddy made
How’d you keep yourself in place all those summer days


Did it feel like shoes too tight
To be your mother’s pride

On a porch screened in from flies
Your quick mind made her smile

Chorus
