July Talk

Summer Dress

 
Intro

Leah
(shh!)
Peter
(ahh!)

 
Verse 1

Peter
I ain't no man, go back to the king
Tied up my suitcase, gonna see what trouble bring{s}
All the sheep are black, said I ain't convinced
Took a trip to the smoke, and she hasn't been back since.
(hoo!)

 
Verse 2

Leah
Barely dressed, looking for love along the plateau
The girls are young, a little dumb and they're going it alone
My boys it's all the same tonight, you've got to make a choice
No need to serenade her now, don't waste that pretty voice

 
Chorus

Peter
Yea but this is life we're living
Life ain't always 'bout forgiving
She's my lady in a summer dress
This is life we're living
Life ain't always bout forgiving

 
Verse 3

Peter
Up and to the station, I took her on back home
I hadn't seen the bed in months but, I hadn't been alone
I got pulled over, whiskey at my feet
Bumped it to the hospital, blood came pouring out of me.
(hoo!)

 
Chorus

Peter and Leah
Yea but this is life we're living
Life ain't always 'bout forgiving
She's my lady in a summer dress
Peter
The last thing that you'll see
She come looking for me

 
Bridge

Peter
She come looking for me

She gonna find me on the floor

She'll find me on the floor

 
Chorus

Peter
And this is life we're living
Peter and Leah
Life ain't always 'bout forgiving
She's my lady in a summer dress
Peter
She'll find me on the floor
Peter and Leah
She's my lady in a summer dress

 
Outro

Peter
She'll find me on the floor
Peter and Leah
She's my lady in a summer dress
Peter
She'll find me on the floor
