Lyrics from Musicaward TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS Long Hot Summer Day Lyrics, singer by TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS

Well I’m gonna pick up some of these empties Lord.
As soon as I find where they lay.
Tied off of them jolly and leaving lines.
On a long hot summer day yea.

For every day I workin’ on the Illinois River.
Get a half a day off with pay.
Oh tow boat pickin’ up barges.
On a long hot summer day.

Well I got me a gal in pecan.
She’s a good ole’ gal okay.
Oh she’s sitting there waitin’ by a window fan.
On a long hot summer day.

For every day I workin’ on the Illinois River.
Get a half a day off with pay.
Oh tow boat pickin’ up barges.
On a long hot summer day.

Well last night we had pork for supper.
And tomorrow it’ll be chicken consommè.
And a fruit jar full a iced tea.
On a long hot summer day. yea

For every day I workin’ on the Illinois River.
Get a half a day off with pay.
Oh tow boat pickin’ up barges.
On a long hot summer day.

Well we dropped a man off in Beardstown.
When we got off yesterday.
Gonna get off down in Alton.
On a long hot summer day.

For every day I workin’ on the Illinois River.
Get a half a day off with pay.
Oh tow boat pickin’ up barges.
On a long hot summer day.

For every day I workin’ on the Illinois River.
Get a half a day off with pay.
Oh tow boat pickin’ up barges.
On a long hot summer day.

For every day I workin’ on the Illinois River.
Get a half a day off with pay.
Oh tow boat pickin’ up barges.
On a long hot summer day.
