Kris Kristofferson - Come Sundown Lyrics

I heard the front door closing softly,
as I wakened from my sleep;
With the soft touch of her lips, Lord,
like a whisper on my cheek;

And I cursed the sun for risin',
'cause the worst, Lord, was yet to come;
'Cause this morning, she's just leavin',
but, come sundown, she'll be gone.

See the lipstick on the pillow
that I placed beneath her head;
And the soft sheets still feel warm, Lord,
where she lay upon my bed;

And it hurts to know it's over,
for the hurt, Lord, has just begun.
'Cause this morning, she's just leavin',
but, come sundown, she'll be gone.

    Great album

  5. Deathkampdrone

    I discovered this album a couple of months ago, and I gotta say it's already one of my absolute favorite country albums of all time. Haven't heard these bonus tracks though. The xylophone backing up is really comforting. :) I'm pretty new to this straight sort of country music, but really enjoying it. My faves are Sweetheart of the Rodeo and White Light, and I like the Louvin Bros as well. I know about Cash and Hank. Anybody have some recommendations for a newbie like me? Thanks in advance. :)

    re: suggestions hey, also Merle!! The purity of Kris' early stuff like this somehow also makes me want to listen to Ola Belle Reed also. This album is a masterpiece for all time, any genre!
