"Come Monday" as written by and Jimmy Buffett....
Headin' up to San Francisco
For the Labor Day weekend show,
I've got my hush-puppies on,
I guess I never was meant for
Glitter rock and roll.
And honey I didn't know
That I'd be missin' you so.

Come Monday It'll be all right,
Come Monday I'll be holding you tight.
I spent four lonely days in a brown L.A. haze
And I just want you back by my side.

Yes it's been quite a summer,
Rent-a-cars and west bound trains.
And now you're off on vacation,
Somethin' you tried to explain.
And darlin' I love you so that's
The reason I just let you go.

Come Monday It'll be all right,
Come Monday I'll be holding you tight.
I spent four lonely days in a brown L.A. haze
And I just want you back by my side.

I can't help it honey,
You're that much a part of me now.
Remember the night in Montana when
We said there'd be no room for doubt.

I hope you're enjoyin' the scenery,
I know that it's pretty up there.
We can go hikin on Tuesday,
With you I'd walk anywhere.
California has worn me quite thin,
I just can't wait to see you again.

Come Monday It'll be all right,
Come Monday I'll be holding you tight.
I spent four lonely days in a brown L.A. haze
And I just want you back by my side.

    General CommentThis is one of the best Jimmy Buffett songs.
    It's beautiful written and has a wonderful meaning to it.
    I think it's pretty self explainatory at that.

    General CommentI love the line "Remember that night in Montana when we said there'd be no room for doubt." It always takes me back to another time and another place.

    It would seem to me that this indicates there was some question and precious little explanation that the female love interest in this song gave for running off on a "vacation" for a while.

    That doesn't really jive with the rest of the song's message so I'm not real sure about it myself, but it did seem to stick out both because of the curiosity of the line, and that it doesn't mesh with the other messages in the song.

    General CommentI heard an interview with him several years ago, and as I remember he wrote this in LA at a really low point. I think he said he was actually contemplating suicide while on tour. He had not really been that successful and was not happy with where he was. Sort of amazing when you look at where he is now.

    The reference to Montana I think is a family one. His sister is married to the author Tom McGuane, who lives in Montana.

    General CommentThese two are trying to end it. He just doesn't want to admit it. Yes she's "off on vacation", cause she needs her space. She'll return but her heart won't. I feel yr pain brother
