I can [D] see her lyin' back in her | satin dress
In a [A] room where you do what you [D] don't confess

If I [C] find you bin creepin' round [D] my back stairs
[D] Sundown, you [G] better take care
If I [C] find you bin creeping round [D] my back stairs [D]

She's been [D] lookin' like a queen in a | sailor's dream
And she [A] don't always say what she [D] really means
[D] Sometimes I [G] think it's a shame
When I [C] get feelin' better when I'm [D] feelin' no pain
[D] Sometimes I [G] think it's a shame
When I [C] get feelin' better when I'm [D] feelin' no pain  [D]

I can [D] picture ev'ry move that a | man could make
Getting' [A] lost in her lovin' is your [D] first mistake
[D] Sundown, you [G] better take care
If I [C] find you bin creepin' round [D] my back stairs
[D] Sometimes I [G] think it's a sin
When I [C] feel like I'm winnin' when I'm [D] losin' again  [D]

I can [D] see her lookin' fast in her | faded jeans
She's a [A] hard lovin' woman got me [D] feelin' mean
[D] Sometimes I [G] think it's a shame
When I [C] get feelin' better when I'm [D] feelin' no pain
[D] Sundown, you [G] better take care
If I [C] find you bin creepin' round [D] my back stairs
[D] Sundown, you [G] better take care
If I [C] find you bin creepin' round [D] my back stairs

My [G] baby plays the guitar
[D] I pick a banjo [C] now [C]

Oh, the [G] North country winters keep a [D] gettin' me now

I caught a [Em↓] trucker out of Philly
Had a [C↓] nice long toke
But [G↓] he's a headed west from the [D↓] Cumberland Gap
To [C↓] Johnson City, [C↓] Tennessee

And I [G] gotta get a move on [D] fit for the sun

And I [C] know that she's the only one
And [G] if I die in Raleigh
At [D] least I will die [C] free [C]
