Happy Labor Day!
“Come Monday” is the title of a song written and recorded by American popular music singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett. It was first released on his 1974 album Living & Dying in ¾ Time and was his first Top 40 hit single reaching #30 on the Billboard Hot 100 as well as #3 Easy Listening and #58 Country.
Buffett wrote the song to his wife while he was on tour. At a live performance in 1974, Buffett mentioned that he wrote the song heading out to California the previous year, so would have been written as he was “heading up to San Francisco for the Labor Day Weekend show” in 1973. The single version of the song replaces the third line, “I’ve got my Hush Puppies on,” with “I’ve got my hiking shoes on.”
The song is one of Buffett’s more popular, and is part of “The Big 8” that he has played at almost all of his concerts, typically changing the line “I just can’t wait to see you again” to “It’s so nice to be in…(location of show)…again”.
