It sure was a long long long hot summer night
As far as my eyes could see
Well my heart was way
down in a cold cold winter storm.

Well my darlin' where can you be? Where can you be baby?
Where can you be?

There was three sugar walls and a two candy cane windows
But the serious mood melted ah all those insight
Everybody's on fire but I'm uh snowin' in a cold blizzard.

Where are you on this ah hot cold summer?
Where are you on this ah hot cold summer?
Where are you on this ah hot cold summer night?

Around about this time the telephone blew its horn across the room
Scared little Annie clean out of her mind and I tell ya
Roman the Candle he peeps out of his peekaboo hide and seek
And grabbed little Annie from the ceiling just in time
And the telephone keeps on screamin'.
Yeah yeah yeah!

Yeah, yeah, yeah!

Hello said my shaked voice, well how you doin' I start to stutter look
ah can't cha tell I'm ah doin'
fine There was my baby talkin' she's way down 'cross the border.

She says I'm gonna hurry to ya I've been a fool
And I'm tired of cryin'
Said I'm tired Jimi.

Yes a long long long hot summer night
As far as my eyes could see
But I can ah feel the heat comin' on as my baby's gettin' closer.

I'm so glad that my baby's comin' to rescue me
So glad that my baby's comin' to rescue me
So glad that my baby's comin' to rescue me
Rescue, rescue me, rescue
Rescue me, rescue
Rescue, rescue, What'd I say
Rescue me, rescue me
Rescue, rescue me, rescue
Rescue me

    General CommentThis seems to talk about a rescue and visitation from someone unamed. These rescues seem to come up a lot in Hendrix songs like "In from the Storm", "Hey Baby", and "Angel". In this song something odd is that Hendrix and Annie seem to be the same person. Was "Annie" a creation of Hendrix's used to represent a different side of his psyche?

    General CommentThe summers of 1965-1967 are known as the "long hot summers", because of the violence breaking out from the once passive resistance of the Civil Rights movement. Haven't figured out any real connections, though..
