lyrics

Porch breezes in the afternoon
Summer when it's gone too soon
Rain cooling off the heat
Driving to the county seat
Tall tales draggin' behind you

Sittin' 'neath the sheltering sky
The empties, you and I
Underneath a marquee moon
Lazy nights in your room
Tall tales draggin' behind you
Making a long story short

Making a long story short
Making a long story short
Tall tales draggin' behind you

Colours in the autumn sun
School days when they've jsut begun
Slippin' down the river's side
Splashing in the nick of time
Tall tales draggin' behind you
Making a long story short

Don't talk about it
They'll haul you in court
Don't talk about it
Make a long story short

Making a long story short
Making a long story short
Making a long story short

Don't talk about it
Don't file no report
Don't talk about it
Make a long story short
