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

She's been looking like a queen in a sailor's dream
And she don't always say what she really mean.
Sundown, you'd better take care
If I find you've been creeping 'round my back stairs.
Sometimes I think it's a shame
When I get better loving and I'm feeling no pain.

I can picture every move that a man can make
Getting lost in her loving is your first mistake,
Sundown, you'd better take care
If I find you've been creeping 'round my back stairs.
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.
Sundown, you'd better take care
If I find you've been creeping 'round my back stairs.
Sometimes, I think it's a shame
When I get better loving and I'm feeling no pain.
Sundown, you'd better take care
If I find you've been creeping 'round my back stairs.
Sometimes, I think it's a sin
When I feel like I'm winning when I'm losing again.
