Song Description

From the opera of 1934...Porky and Bess

Story Behind the Song

Have sung this forever a cappella now it was time to sing it with music. I was 17 when I first sang this. I would sit in front of our HFI and listen until I could sing with out the music.

Great cover of an old favorite folk song. Love the simple production with sweet, soothing instrumentation. Nice guitar. Soulful vocal! Way to go!

    - Kate Carpenter

Nice voice, kinda' sultry and sweaty. Decent guitar part, works with this arrangement. A generally nice redo of a classic show tune.

    - Lars Michnevich, a.k.a. Chief Inspector of "Bunko Squad"


Summertime and the living is easy
Fish are jumping and the cotton is high
Though your daddy's rich
And your ma she's good lookin'

So hush, little baby, don't you cry

One of these mornins'
your goina' rise up, singing
Then you'll spread your wings
And you'll take the sky

But til that mornin'
there's a nothing can harm you
With mammy and daddy
Standing by

Summer Time
Summer Time

So hush little baby
Don't, don't, don't

You cry ....Summertime, Summertime
