Hurry sundown
Let the weary day be over
I'm so tired of hurt I've been taken
My heart has been aching so
Don't mind struggling'
'Don't mind livin' on a little
If someday my kids are laughing together
And have things I never own
I can feel many changes are coming
Beat them drums in a distance a drumming'
Telling the world a new future has begun
Yes you got to hurry sundown
I can't wait see the morning
There's a lot of work
I must lend a hand to
So bring on that brand new day
Afraid tomorrow is on it's way
So hurry down, hurry down sweet sun
