Come Monday

by Jimmy Buffett

This version is known as the BBC version. In england in the 70’s, “hushpuppies” was a banned word so this version inserted ‘hiking shoes’ instead.


Lyrics

Headin’ up to San Francisco
for the Labor Day weekend show
I’ve got my hiking shoes on
I guess I never was meant for
glitter rock and roll
And honey I didn’t know
that I’d be missin’ you so

Come Monday It’ll be alright
Come Monday I’ll be holding you tight
I spent four lonely days in a brown L.A. haze
and I just want you back by my side

Yes it’s been quite a summer
rent-a-cars and west bound trains
And now you’re off on vacation
somethin’ you try to explain
And darlin’ It’s I love you so that’s
the reason I just let you go

Come Monday It’ll be alright
Come Monday I’ll be holding you tight
I spent four lonely days in a brown L.A. haze
and I just want you back by my side

I can’t help it honey
you’re that much a part of me now
Remember the night in Montana when
we said there’d be no room for doubt

I hope you’re enjoyin’ the scenery
I know that it’s pretty up there
We can go hikin on Tuesday
with you I’d walk anywhere
California has worn me quite thin
I just can’t wait to see you again

Come Monday It’ll be alright
Come Monday I’ll be holding you tight
I spent four lonely days in a brown L.A. haze
and I just want you back by my side

I spent four lonely days in a brown L.A. haze
and I just want you back by my side
