Kevin Morby – Sundowner Lyrics

Sundowner Lyrics by Kevin Morby

Hey man, where’d you get your tan?
I’d like to have that sun in me
See I like the sun, but I start to run
The moment that the sun runs from me
I am a sundowner
So live and leave
I am a sundowner
Don’t let the sun go down on me

Hey Ma, where’d you find Pa?
I’d like to have some company
See I like a crowd but I don’t know how
To keep one surrounding me
I am a sundowner
So live and leave
I am a sundowner
Don’t let the sun run from me

I went to the market but the market was closed
Sign on the window said “The hours devour us”
So I went to the river and it said “Come here, let me whisper in your ear”
And it pulled me under
So I went to the lord but the lord said “No, you’re not welcome here anymore”
So I went to the sky but the sky was closed
Said I don’t know where I’m gunna go
I am a wandering soul, through the back of what I know
I am a sundowner, please
Don’t let the sun go down on me

Hey man, where’d you get your tan?
I’d like to have that sun in me
See I like the sun, but I start to run
The moment that the sun runs from me
I am a sundowner
Please don’t let the sun go down on me
