Sunday Morning Coming Down

Kris Kristofferson

 G
Well I woke up Sunday morning
 CG
With no way to hold my head it didn't hurt
 Em
And the beer I had for breakfast was'nt bad
 D
So I had one more for desert
 GC
Then I fumbled thru my closet for my clothes
 GEm
And found my cleanest dirty shirt
 CAm
And I shaved my face & combed my hair
 CDGCG
Stumbled down the stairs to meet the day 

 GC
I'd smoked my brain the night before on cigarettes
 G
And songs that I'd been pickin'
 Em
But I lit my first & watched a small kid cursin'
 D
at a can that he was kickin'
 GC
Then I crossed the empty street & caught the Sunday
 GEm
Smell of someone fryin' chicken 
 CAmC
And it took me back to something that I'd lost
 DGCG
Somehow, somewhere along the way 

Chorus
 GG7C
     On a Sunday morning sidewalk
 G
        Wishin' Lord that I was stoned
 D
        'Cause there's something in a Sunday
 G
        That makes a body feel alone
 G7C
        And there's nothin' short o' dyin'
 G
        Half as lonesome as the sound
 D
        On a sleepy city sidewalk
 G
        Sunday morning comming down

 GC
In the park I saw a daddy, with a laughing little
 G
Girl that he was swinging
And I stopped beside a Sunday school

 EmD
And listened to the song that they were singing
 G
Then I headed back for home & somewhere
 CGEm
 far away a lonely bell was ringing 
 CAm
And it echoed thru the canyons
 CDGCG
Like the disappearing dreams of yesterday
