Sunday Morning Coming Down 
recorded by Johnny Cash
written by Kris Kristofferson

Well I woke up Sunday morning  
        F                               C    
With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt
And the beer I had for breakfast  
      Am                         G7     
Wasn't bad so I had one more for dessert

Then I fumbled in my closet through  
   F                                   C    
My clothes and found my cleanest dirty shirt
Than I washed my face and combed my hair and 
Stumbled down the stairs to meet the day
I'd smoked my mind the night before  
With cigarettes and songs I'd been picking
But I lit my first and watched  
A small kid playing with a can that he was kicking
Then I walked across the street  
And caught the Sunday smell of someone frying chicken
And Lord it took me back to something  
That I lost somewhere somehow along the way
On a Sunday morning sidewalk 
I'm wishing Lord that I was stoned
Cause there's something in a Sunday 
That makes a body feel alone

And there's nothing short of dieing 
That's half as lonesome as the sound
Of the sleeping city sidewalk 
And Sunday morning coming down
In the park I saw a Daddy  
With a laughing little girl that he was swinging
And I stopped beside a Sunday school  
And listened to the songs they were singing

Then I headed down the street  
And somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringing
And it echoed through the canyons  
Like the disappearing dreams of yesterday
repeat chorus
