Sunday Morning Coming Down

Johnny Cash

 C
Well, I woke up Sunday morning
 FGC
With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt.
 Am
And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad,
 G
So I had one more for dessert.
 CF
Then I fumbled in my closet through my clothes
 CAm
And found my cleanest dirty shirt.
 FG
Then I washed my face and combed my hair

 C
And stumbled down the stairs to meet the day.

 C
I'd smoked my mind the night before
 FGC
With cigarettes and songs I'd been picking.
 Am
But I lit my first and watched a small kid
 G
Playing with a can that he was kicking.
 C
Then I walked across the street
 FCAm
And caught the Sunday smell of someone frying chicken.
 FG
And Lord, it took me back to something that I'd lost
 C
Somewhere, somehow along the way.

 F
On a Sunday morning sidewalk,
 C
I'm wishing, Lord, that I was stoned.
 G
'Cause there's something in a Sunday
 C
That makes a body feel alone.
 F
And there's nothing short a' dying
 C
That's half as lonesome as the sound
 G
Of the sleeping city sidewalk
 C
And Sunday morning coming down.

In the park I saw a daddy
With a laughing little girl that he was swinging.
And I stopped beside a Sunday school
And listened to the songs they were singing.
Then I headed down the street,
And somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringing,
And it echoed through the canyon
Like the disappearing dreams of yesterday.

On a Sunday morning sidewalk,
I'm wishing, Lord, that I was stoned.
'Cause there's something in a Sunday
That makes a body feel alone.
And there's nothing short a' dying
That's half as lonesome as the sound
Of the sleeping city sidewalk
And Sunday morning coming down.
