"Street Fighting Sun" as written by and Eric Earley....
Well I took my lady and my rifle and my truck
And I drove to the top of the hill
I took my gun and I shot down the sun
But the sun it ain't so easy to kill
So I pushed out my skis, left my lady in the trees
Started swingin' like an old-time saloon
Had an all-day kickdown dragout fight
With the sun and his brother the moon

So daddy don't you stop but daddy don't you sleep
Til the sun is but a beggar throwin' tricks up in the street
So daddy don't you stop but daddy don't you sleep
For the moon is but a mirror and the sun is dead asleep

You ain't nothin' but a street fightin' sun
You ain't nothin' but a street fightin' sun
You ain't nothin' but a street fightin' sun

Well I woke up on the street with the shadows at my feet
Thinkin' maybe I should call it a day
Till I heard the rooster call sittin' up on the wall
I guess he had him something to say
So I wandered all around in the mountains in the dark
Gettin' silly by the light of the moon
For the sun had gone away, guess I whipped him anyway
Now I'm thinkin' that I spoke too soon

So daddy don't you stop but daddy don't you sleep
Til the sun is but a beggar throwin' tricks up in the street
So daddy don't you stop but daddy don't you sleep
For the moon is but a mirror and the sun is dead asleep

You ain't nothin' but a street fightin' sun
You ain't nothin' but a street fightin' sun
You ain't nothin' but a street fightin' sun

    General CommentI don't know what it really truly means, but when you live in the desert like I do, this song is exactly how it feels in summer.

    Lyric Correctionhey! I'm pretty sure the lyrics are this:

    Well I took my lady and a rifle and my truck
    And I drove to the top of the hill
    I took out my gun and I shot down the sun
    But the sun it ain't so easy to kill

    So I pushed up my sleeves, left my lady in the trees
    Started swingin' like an old-time saloon
    Had an all-day kick-down drag-out fight
    With the sun and his brother the moon

    You ain't nothing but a street fighting sun
    You ain't nothing but a street fighting sun
    You ain't nothing but a street fighting sun

    So darlin' don't you slumber, darlin' don't you sleep
    Til the sun is but a beggar doing tricks up in the street
    Darlin' don't you slumber, darlin' don't you sleep
    For the moon is but a mirror and the sun is fast asleep

    You ain't nothing but a street fighting sun
    You ain't nothing but a street fighting sun
    You ain't nothing but a street fighting sun

    Well I woke up on the street with the shadows at my feet
    Thinking maybe I should call it a day
    Til I heard the rooster call sittin' up on the wall
    I guess he had him something to say

    So I wandered all around in the mountains and the ground
    Gettin' silly by the light of the moon
    For the sun had gone away, guess I whipped him anyway
    Now I'm thinking that I spoke too soon

    So darlin' don't you slumber, darlin' don't you sleep
    Til the sun is but a beggar doing tricks up in the street
    Darlin' don't you slumber, darlin' don't you sleep
    For the moon is but a mirror and the sun is fast asleep

    You ain't nothing but a street fighting sun
    You ain't nothing but a street fighting sun
    You ain't nothing but a street fighting sun

    *epic face-melting slide guitar solo*
