Love in the Hot Afternoon
recorded by Gene Watson                      [3/4 time]
written by Kent Westberry & Vince Matthews

C                               F             C
From somewhere outside I hear a street vendor cry filet gumbo
                         F              C
From my window I see him going down the street and he don't know
                      Am           C           Am         C
That we fell right to sleep in the damp tangled sheets so soon
              G7           C
After love in the hot afternoon
        G7                   F             C
Now the bourbon street lady  sleeps like a baby in the shadows
        G7         F       C
She was new to me  full of mystery but now I know  
                  Am       C         Am       C
That she's just a girl and I'm just a guy in a room
               G7       C
For love in the hot afternoon
                              F              C
We got high in the park  this morning and we sat without talking
                              F           C
Then we came back here in the heat of the day tired of walking
                Am         C         Am       C
Where under her breath she hummed to herself a tune
           G7           C
Of Love in the hot afternoon
