Angel on a Pink Schwinn

One of my favorite songs is “Sweet Summer” by Diamond Rio. It takes me back to summer time when I was a kid, spending endless hours biking up and down our street with my brother and the neighborhood boys. I remember the smell of freshly cut grass, the aroma of hamburgers sizzling on the charcoal grill, and just the genuine freedom you feel on a lazy summer day. Here are the lyrics.

Sweet Summer by Diamond Rio

He had a freezer full of otter pops
Push ups, drum sticks and dreamsicles
And a paint chipped change box
Full of sticky quarters, dimes and nickles
It was automatic when we heard that song
Run home and get your money before he’s gone

Lookin’ underneath the Chrysler, in the driveway
Hey, dad whatchya doin’
The smell of summer twilight
There was always somebody barbeque’n
Truth or dare with the kids on our road
Hide and seek, till your mama called you home

Sweet summer, yeah I remember that
Sweet summer, let me take you back

Both our moms were best friends
she was the youngest of three daughters
An angel on a pink Schwinn, my first crush
‘Til this day, I aint forgot her.
Those days were never too long
And never too hot
And even though I was out of school
I was learnin’ a lot

Sweet summer, yeah I remember that
Sweet summer, let me take you back

There’s not a day that I don’t remember
From the end of May to the first of September
