Lyrics

Crazy From The Heat
Words and Music by Craig Bowers

Now just outside Tallahassee are the nicest people you'll meet
And there ain't nobody in a hurry down there
They keep it simple and sweet
Not much different than you and me
Just a little bit crazy from the heat

And the air can get so thick, you can cut it with a knife
Grapefruit blossom on a hot breeze
French perfume never smelled so nice
Skeeters buzzin' 'round sundown
Turn the daytime into night

And sometimes sweet Justine
You get too friendly with the men you meet
On a hot summer night with your clothes stickin' to ya
Too cozy with the men you meet
I chalk it up to the weather
You're just a little crazy from the heat

So I walk you out in the backwoods
Lay you down underneath the pines
All stretched out on a piney bough
Ain't nothin' ever looked so fine
I'll say anything you want little girl
Anything to make you mine

Now I love that cracker woman
From her hair down to her feet
And when she wraps her love all around me
She can make my world complete
But she won't marry me for love or money
She just laughs and says 'Boy, You're crazy from the heat'.

Just outside Tallahassee are the nicest people you'll meet
And there ain't nobody in a hurry down there
They keep it simple and sweet
Not much different than you and me
Just a little bit crazy from the heat

Not much different than you and me
Just a little crazy from the heat
