High Summer (Live)

Van Morrison Concert

3rd song in medley:

Goin' Down Geneva/Brand New Cadillac

High Summer/Reminds Me Of You

Plaza De La Trinidad July 27, 1999

Transcribed: AwCantor@aol.com

Stop up an' see me some time!

Lucifer!

By the mansion by the hillside

Red sportscar comes drivin' down the road

And pulls up into the driveway

And the story does unfold

She's standin' by the rhododendrons

Where the roses are in bloom

Looking out at the Atlantic ocean

In her head she hums this tune

Thank God the dark nights are gone

This high summer's got me down

Yet I wait 'till the end of August

Get off this merri-go-round

And they shut him out of paradise

Called him Lucifer and frowned

He was proud of what God made him

Even before the angels shot him down to the ground

He's light out of the darkness

And he wears a starry crown

If ya see him, nothin's shakin'

This high summer's got him lowdown

Lowdown

Horns!

High summer's got him lonesome

Even when he makes the rounds

Makes the rounds

Ain't no two ways about it

High summer's got him lowdown

Lowdown

Checked into the tiny village by the lakeside

Settled down to start anew

Far away from the politicans

And the many chosen few

Far away from the jealousy factor!

Ev'rything that was tearin' him apart

Far away from the organ grinder

Ev'ryone that played that part

And the dark nights are gone again

This high summer's got me down

Have to wait 'till the end of August

Get off this merri-go-round

And they shoved him out of paradise

Called him 'Lucifer' and frowned

He was proud of what God made him

Even before the angels shot him to the ground

He's a light out of the darkness

An' he wears a starry crown

If ya see him nothin's shakin'

High summer's got him lowdown

Lowdown

(Instrumental & harmonica)

Well, summer on the rebound

Hey, summer's got him lowdown

Yeah, summer on the rebound

Oh, summer's got him lowdown

Lowdown.
