When The Sun Goes Down
Carr Lyrics


In the evening, mama
When the sun goes down
In the evening, baby
When the sun goes down
Well, ain't it lonesome
Ain't it lonesome, babe
When your love is not around?
When the sun goes down

Last night, I laid a-sleeping
I was thinking to myself
Last night, I laid a-sleeping
I was thinking to myself
Well, what I been thinking
Is why that the one that you love
Will mistreat you for someone else?
When the sun goes down

The sun rises in the east
An it sets up in the west
The sun rises in the east, mama
An it set's in the west
Well, it's hard to tell, hard to tell
Which one will treat you the best
When the sun goes down

'Yea-ah'
'Ooo-ee, hoo-wee'
'Yea-ah'
'Hee, hoo-oh'
'Yea-hi'
'Hoo, hoo-eee'

Good-bye old sweetheart and pals
Yes, I'm going away
But I may be back to see you again
Some old rainy day
Well, in the evening, in the evening
When the sun goes down
When the sun goes down.

In the evening, In the evening
In the evening, mama

Ain't it lonesome, babe

Last night, I laid a-sleeping
I was thinking to myself
Last night, I laid a-sleeping
I was thinking to myself
Well, what I been thinking

Will mistreat you for someone else?
When the sun goes down
The sun rises in the east
An it sets up in the west
The sun rises in the east, mama
An it set's in the west
Well, it's hard to tell, hard to tell

Some old rainy day
Well, in the evening, in the evening
When the sun goes down
When the sun goes down.

Leroy Carr might be one of the best songwriters who most people have never heard of. Lots of people who like blues don't know that he wrote this song, Blues at Sunrise, How Long and so many others. Plus he's from my hometown...

A good quality version is on The Roots of Robert Johnson CD

Well damn. It seems that this song predates "Love In Vain" by NINE YEARS.

@Earnie Malumpkiss Robert johnson. Honestly people who compare blues melodies and think it has some connection are pretty stupid. It's pretty hard to come up with new things when you're working with 3 chords

Broonzy had his OWN thing. HE was unique and very intelligent -contrary to what some think or what some reviews have said. Broonzy is very very important. But I adore Carr's version just as much because they are different. THAT is the key. All the greats had their own thing, own sound,,,and wait a minute! Broonzy was a guitar player! SO,,of course its not the same. THAT is music man. REAL music from real people who had their OWN sounds.
