Sunday Morning Coming Down

Kris Kristofferson

 G
        Well I woke up Sunday morning
 CG
        with no way to hold my head, that didn't hurt

and the beer I had for breakfast
 EmD
        wasn't bad so I had one more for dessert

Verse 2:
 G
        Than I fumble through my closet for
 CG
        my clothes and found my cleanest dirty shirt                                       
 Em
        and I shaved my face and combed my hair
 D
        and stumbled down the stairs to meet the day

Verse 3:
 G
        I'd smoked my brain the night before
 CG
        and cigarettes and songs that I've been pickin'                    
 Em
        but I lit my first and watched a small kid
 D
        cussin' at a can that he was kicking

Verse 4:
 G
        Then I crossed the empty street and caught
 CG
        the sunday smell of someone fryin' chicken

and it took me back to somethin' that
 EmD
        I'd lost somehow somewhere along away

Chorus:
 C
        On a sunday mornin' sidewalks
 G
        wishing Lord that I was stoned
 D
        'cause there is something in a sunday   
 G
        that makes a body feel alone

 C
        And there's nothin' short of dyin'
 G
        half as lonesome as the sound
 D
        on the sleepin' city side walks
 G
        Sunday mornin' comin' down

Verse 5:
 G
        In the park I saw a daddy with
 CG
        a laughing little girl who he was swingin'
 Em
        and I stopped beside a sunday school
 D
        and listened to the song that they were singin'

Verse 6:
 G
        Then I headed back for home and
 CG
        somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringin'
 Em
        and it echoed thru the canyon like
 D
        the disepparing dreams of yesterday.

Thanks to Jan Ekeland for the lyrics.

 C
Well I woke up Sunday morning
 FC
with no way to hold my head that it didn't hurt
 Am
and the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad
 GG7CG7
so I had one more for dessert                
 C
Then I fumbled through my closet
 FCAm
for my clothes and found my cleanest dirty shirt    
 FG7
and I shaved my face and I combed my hair and
 FG7
stumbled down the stairs to meet the day

 C
I smoked my brain the night before
 FC
with cigarettes and songs that I had been pickin'
 C
But I lit my first and watched a small kid
 AmGG7CG7
cussin' at a can that he was kickin'             
 C
And I crossed the empty street
 FCAm
and caught the Sunday smell of someone fryin' chicken  
 FG7
And it took me back to somethin'
 FG7C
that I 'd lost somewhere somehow along the way

 F
On the Sunday mornin' sidewalk
 C
wishin' Lord that I was stone
 G7
'cause there's somethin' in Sunday
 CC7
that makes a body feel alone   
 F
and there's nothing short of dyin'
 C
half as lonesome as the sound
 GG7F
of a sleepin' city sidewalk                
 G7C
Sunday mornin' comin' down

In the park I saw a daddy
 FC
with a laughing little girl that he was swingin'

and I stopped beside a Sunday school
 AmGG7CG7
and listened to the songs that they were singin'             
 C
and I headed back for home
 FCAm
and somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringin' 
 FG7
and it echoed through the canyon
 FG7C
like the disappearing dreams of yesterday
