Sleeping in the midday sun?


Recommended Posts

Ok, so I heard this song the other day and the only lyrics I remember are "sleeping in the midday sun" Now it's not John Cale or The Kinks, it was a very soft beautiful female voice..she keeps repeating that with smoothe instruments in the back ground..such a pretty song..any idea?? HELP! It could be Sitting in the midday sun now that I think about it.

Lazybones, sleepin in the sun....how you spect to get your days work done?

You cant get your days work done......sleepin in the noon day sun

Lazybones, layin in the shade....how you gonna get your cornmeal made?

You cant get no cornmeal made....sleepin in that evening shade

When taters need sprayin, I bet you keep prayin

The bugsll fall off of the vine

And when you go fishin I bet you keep wishin

Them fish dont grab your line

Lazybones, loafin all the day.....how you spect to make a dime that way?

You wont make no dime that way.....loafin in the shade all day

?

Lazy Bones. Never heard it done by a woman before though.

There's Buffalo Ballet by the Walkabouts. Their singer seems to be female.

Buffalo Ballet

When abilene was young and gay

And thunder storms filled up the day

The cattle roamed outside the town

Sleeping in the midday sun

Sleeping in the midday sun

Sleeping in the midday sun

Sleeping in the midday sun

Then tracks were lain across the plain

By broken old men in torrid rains

The towns grew up and the people were still

Sleeping in the midday sun

Sleeping in the midday sun

Sleeping in the midday sun

Sleeping in the midday sun

We all joined in and all joined hands

All joined in to help run this land

Then soldiers came, long long ago

Rode through the town and rode down those who were

Sleeping in the midday sun

Sleeping in the midday sun

Sleeping in the midday sun

Sleeping in the midday sun

Gold came and went, quickly spent

And the people broke down and often drowned

In the wealth and pain of old abilene

Sleeping in the midday sun

Sleeping in the midday sun

Sleeping in the midday sun

Sleeping in the midday sun
