Hurry sundown, let the weary day be over
I'm so tired of hurt, I've been taken
My heart has been aching so
Don't mind struggling, don't mind livin' a little

If someday my kids are laughing together
And have things I never own
I can feel many changes are coming

Beat them drums in a distance, a drumming
Telling the world a new future has begun
Yes, you got to hurry sundown
I can't wait to see the morning

There's a lot of work I must lend a hand to
So bring on that brand new day
Afraid tomorrow is on it's way
So hurry down, hurry down sweet sun
