Waitin' on Sundown Andy Griggs
Intro: G C9 (x2)
[G]Jimmy was waitin' on Shelby Jean
In the p[C]arking lot at the Dairy Queen
[G]He knew she's gonna be there soon
Then they'll bl[C]ow this town like a cheap balloon
[G]She came in cryin' this morning at the store
Said I s[C]wear Jimmy, I just can't take no more
[G]So he quit his job and drew his pay
Now he's h[C]elpin' Shelby make her getaway
And [Em]oh... sittin' on g[C]o...[D]..
Waitin' on s[G]undown
Waitin' on s[C9]undown
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
And [Em]oh... sittin' on g[C]o...[D].
Waitin' on s[G]undown[C9]
Waitin' on s[D]undown.[C9]....[G/B].....[D]
Waitin' on s[D]undown.[C9]....[G/B].....[D].
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
And [Em]oh... she's gonna let him kn[C]ow..[D]..
She's waitin' on s[G]undown[C9]
She's just waitin' on s[G]undown[C9]
Yeah they're waitin' on s[G]undown...[C9]..
Waitin on s[G]undown...[C9]...
They're just waitin' on s[G]undown
