Summer (The First Time) Lyrics

The original Bobby Goldsboro version as I remember it was;

'Twas a hot afternoon
The last day of June
And the sun was a demon
The clouds were afraid
Wanting (one-ten?) in the shade
And the pavements were steamin'

I told Billy Ray
In his red Chevrolet
Needed time for some thinking
She was just walking by
When I looked in here eye
And I swore it was winkin'

She was thirty-one
I was seventeen
I knew nothin' 'bout love
She knew everything
But I sat down beside her on a front porch swing
And wondered what the coming night would bring

The sun closed her eyes
As it climbed in the sky
And it started top swelter
The sweat trickled down
The front of her gown
And I thought (swore?) 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
And 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 a boy took her hand
But I saw the sunrise as a man

Ten years have gone by
Since I looked in her eye
And the memory lingers
I go back in my mind
To the very first time
And (feel?) the touch of her fingers

'Twas a hot afternoon
The last day of June
And the sun was a demon
The clouds were afraid
Wanting in the shade
And the pavements were steaming... and fades
