TITLE: Sundown
Lyrics and Chords

I can see her lying back in her satin dress
In a room where you do what you don't confess
Sundown, you'd better take care
If I find you've been creeping 'round my back stairs
Sundown, you'd better...

/ E  - / B7 E / E A / D E / E A / D E /

She's been looking like a queen in a sailor's dream
And she don't always say what she really means
Sometimes I think it's a shame
When I get feeling better when I'm feeling no pain
Sometimes I think it's a shame...

I can picture every move that a man could make
Getting lost in her loving is your first mistake
Sundown, you'd better...
Sometimes I think it's a sin
When I feel like I'm winning when I'm losing again

I can see her looking fast in her faded jeans
She's a hard-loving woman, got me feeling mean
Sometimes I think it's a shame...
Sundown, you'd better...
Sundown, you'd better...
Sometimes, I think it's a sin...
