Song Author Chris Gantry , Chris Gantry , Larry Baunach og Larry Baunach Performer: Billy Walker og Ray Wix Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]I first met Sundown [G7]Mary a [F]year ago [C]today
Traveling the same [G7]road I was [F]going the other [C]way  
We [F]talked and then she [C]said you might be [D7]nice to have [G7]around
[F]If you don't mind a [C]laying your [F]head wher[C]ever the [G7]sun goes [C]down

I've always been a [G7]loner never [F]had no one be[C]fore
But with every town we [G7]passed through I [F]loved her a little [C]more
And [F]one night when I [C]kissed her I [D7]thought she felt the [G7]same   
[F]But then the spell was [C]broken [F]by the [C]whistle [G7]of a [C]train

What have you heard from [F]Sundown [C]Mary [F]what has she done [C]today
Is she [F]eating her food from the [C]silver spoon and [D7]off of the golden [G7]plate
Is [F]she in the chips in [C]Texas or [G7]stranded broke in [C]Maine
Do you know if Sundown Mary [G7]ever speaks my [C]name
[F]Ever speaks my [C]name

We hopped a train to [G7]Baton Rouge the [F]trip took several [C]days
I had no idea that [G7]she thought of [F]going separate [C]ways
There [F]in the crowded [C]station she [D7]softly spoke my [G7]name   
[F]And said it's time to [C]leave you [F]cause I [C]come and [G7]go like [C]rain

There's not much left of [G7]what you'd call [F]the man I used to [C]be  
For in her place an [G7]empty space [F]haunts my memo[C]ry  
[F]Always broke and [C]lonely I [D7]age a year a [G7]day   
[F]And when I get to [C]drinking [F]nights there's [C]just one [G7]thing I [C]say  

What have you heard from [F]Sundown [C]Mary [F]what has she done [C]today
Is she [F]eating her food from the [C]silver spoon and [D7]off of the golden [G7]plate
Is [F]she in the chips in [C]Texas or [G7]stranded broke in [C]Maine
Do you know if Sundown Mary [G7]ever speaks my [C]name
[F]Ever speaks my [C]name


I first met Sundown Mary a year ago today
Traveling the same road I was going the other way
We talked and then she said you might be nice to have around
If you don't mind a laying your head wherever the sun goes down

I've always been a loner never had no one before
But with every town we passed through I loved her a little more
And one night when I kissed her I thought she felt the same
But then the spell was broken by the whistle of a train

What have you heard from Sundown Mary what has she done today
Is she eating her food from the silver spoon and off of the golden plate
Is she in the chips in Texas or stranded broke in Maine
Do you know if Sundown Mary ever speaks my name
Ever speaks my name

We hopped a train to Baton Rouge the trip took several days
I had no idea that she thought of going separate ways
There in the crowded station she softly spoke my name
And said it's time to leave you cause I come and go like rain

There's not much left of what you'd call the man I used to be
For in her place an empty space haunts my memory
Always broke and lonely I age a year a day
And when I get to drinking nights there's just one thing I say

What have you heard from Sundown Mary what has she done today
Is she eating her food from the silver spoon and off of the golden plate
Is she in the chips in Texas or stranded broke in Maine
Do you know if Sundown Mary ever speaks my name
Ever speaks my name
