  • They boarded up this water town
    Ain't nobody hanging 'round
    Another grey September day
    Was I crazy to think she'd stay

    If that sun would have just
    Hung up in that sky
    Just a little bit, yeah
    Just a little bit longer
    If those blue water waves
    Could've stayed at our feet
    On a beach instead of going out with the tide
    If that wind was a friend
    It'd still be blowing in
    Like a warm southern whisper on her
    She might have stayed forever
    And never ever left these arms
    If only I
    Had a little more summertime

    I brace myself against the cold
    And let her memory take hold
    Stirring that old fire up
    As if I don't miss her enough

    If that sun would have just
    Hung up in that sky
    Just a little bit, yeah
    Just a little bit longer
    If those blue water waves
    Could've stayed at our feet
    On a beach instead of going out with the tide
    If that wind was a friend
    It'd still be blowing in
    Like a warm southern whisper on her
    She might have stayed forever
    And never ever left these arms
    If only I
    Had a little more summertime
    Just a little more summertime

    If that sun would have just
    Hung up in that sky
    Just a little bit, yeah
    Just a little bit longer
    She might have stayed forever
    And never ever left these arms
    If only I
    Had a little more summertime Writer/s: JERRY FLOWERS, TONY MARTIN, WENDELL LEE MOBLEY
