Sundown Mary
Recorded by Billy Walker
Written by Chris Gantry and Larry Baunach

C G7 F C
I first met Sundown Mary a year ago today
G7 F C
Traveling the same road I was going the other way
F C D7 G7
We talked and then she said you might be nice to have around
F C F C G7 C
If you don't mind a laying your head wherever the sun goes down

G7 F C
I've always been a loner never had no one before
G7 F C
But with every town we passed through I loved her a little more
F C D7 G7
And one night when I kissed her I thought she felt the same
F C F C G7 C
But then the spell was broken by the whistle of a train

What have you heard from Sundown Mary what has she done today
F C D7 G7
Is she eating her food from the silver spoon and off of the golden plate
F C G7 C
Is she in the chips in Texas or stranded broke in Maine
G7 C
Do you know if Sundown Mary ever speaks my name
Ever speaks my name

G7 F C
We hopped a train to Baton Rouge the trip took several days
G7 F C
I had no idea that she thought of going separate ways
F C D7 G7
There in the crowded station she softly spoke my name
F C F C G7 C
And said it's time to leave you cause I come and go like rain

G7 F C
There's not much left of what you'd call the man I used to be
G7 F C
For in her place an empty space haunts my memory
F C D7 G7
Always broke and lonely I age a year a day
F C F C G7 C
And when I get to drinking nights there's just one thing I say

Repeat #3
