As the Sun Beats Down - lyrics

Show song Facebook

[Intro]
[Verse 1]
When the fight broke on Brighton Road
Traffic stopped
Some old man hit the pavement
And they ushered in the cops
And the camera crews arrived
And people gathered all around
[Refrain]
As the sun beat down
As the sun beat down
[Sax Solo]
[Verse 2]
Picked up the phone
"It's no emergency, but come on over quick"
Ricky drove his old Ford truck over to give us both a lift
Headed for the hospital, that big one downtown
[Refrain]
As the sun beat down
As the sun beat down
[Verse 3]
It was a day that broke records
Melting tar on every block
People dropping from the climate in the streets
Something died inside that sweltering garage
A sacrificial lamb in honor of the heat, yeah and...
[Refrain]
And the sun beat down
And the sun beat down
And the sun beat down
And the sun beat down
[Coda]
August 23rd, 1959
Got word from the nurse there hadn't been enough time
Screaming baby boy now slept without a sound
As the sun beat down
