Waitin' On Sundown

Andy Griggs

 G
 Jimmy was waitin' on Shelby Jean
 C
In the parking lot at the Dairy Queen
 G
 He knew she's gonna be there soon
 C
Then they'll blow this town like a cheap balloon
 G
 She came in cryin' this morning at the store
 C
Said I swear Jimmy, I just can't take no more
 G
 So he quit his job and drew his pay
 C
Now he's helpin' Shelby make her getaway

 EmCD
And oh... sittin' on go.....
 G
Waitin' on sundown
 C9
Waitin' on sundown

Verse 2:
No more beatin' to be denied
No more bruises that makeup can't hide
All these years she's tried to love that man
But all he ever gave her was the back of his hand
Now Jimmy's a young boy just out of his teens
So many things that he still hasn't seen
But he's old enough to know wrong from right
That's why he's helpin' Shelby make her break tonight

 EmCD
And oh... sittin' on go....
 GC9

Verse 3:
Drove all night drove all day
Jimmy listened to everything Shelby had to say
How she'd suffered at her lover's hand
He said honey I wanna change all that if I can
They pulled over to take a little rest
Shelby put her head down on Jimmy's chest
And she could hear the beatin' of his heart
And it sounded like the rhythm of a brand new start

 EmCD
And oh... she's gonna let him know....
 GC9
She's waitin' on sundown    
 GC9
She's just waitin' on sundown    
 GC9
Yeah they're waitin' on sundown.....
 GC9
Waitin on sundown......
 G
They're just waitin' on sundown
