Hot water out of hose bib screw-up?

Just bought a new home, (bank repo) and found out that I am getting hot water out of one of the hose bibs? The hose bib is on the front side of the house, hot water heater in gargage about 20 feet or so from bib.
Any suggestions on what to do? Is it most likely (bib) tied into the water heater outlet pipe?
Thanks Ron....

Sure sounds like someone tapped into the wrong pipe. If so, the only resolution is to replumb it to a cold water pipe. (Prior to the water softener inlet ...unless you want soft water for this hose bib.)
