Sundown


by Gordon Lightfoot
I can see her lying back in a satin dress
In a room where you do what you don't confess

F# - - - /   / C# - - - / F# - - - //

C-a:	Sundown you better take care,
If I find you've been creeping round up my back stairs
  a:	Sundown you better take care,
If I find you've been creeping round up my back stairs

F# - - - / B - - - / E - - - / F# - - - /  x4  / (F# - - - /    // )

She's been looking like a queen in a sailors dream
And she don't always say what she really mean

C-b:	Sometimes I think it's a shame
When I get feeling better when I'm feeling no pain
  b:	Sometimes I think it's a shame
When I get feeling better when I'm feeling no pain

I could picture every move that a man could make
Getting lost in her loving is your first mistake

C-a:	Sundown you better take care,
If I find you've been creeping round up my back stairs
  c:	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 jean
She's a hard loving woman, but they're feeling mean

C-b:	Sometimes I think it's a shame
When I get feeling better when I'm feeling no pain
  a:	Sundown you better take care,
If I find you've been creeping round up my back stairs
  a:	Sundown you better take care,
If I find you've been creeping round up my back stairs
  c:	Sometimes I think it's a sin
When I feel like I'm winning when I'm losing again
