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
F C F C 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 F C 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
