Come Sundown
Kris Kristofferson Lyrics

I heard the front door closing softly
As I awakened from my sleep
With the last touch of her kips, 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

Brilliant love Kris Kristofferson!


Great album


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!
