Memphis Slim – In The Evening lyrics

In the ev'nin'
Mama, when the sun goes down
In the ev'nin'
Mama, when the sun goes down
Well, ain't it lonesome, ain't it lonesome
The one you love she's not around
When the sun go down

Sun rise in the East
And it goes down in the West
Sun rise in the East
And it goes down in the West
Well, it's hard to tell, hard to tell
Which one will treat you the best
When the sun go down

Last night I lay asleepin'
I was thinkin' on to myself
Last night I lay asleepin'
I was thinkin' on to myself
Well the girl I love mistreated me
She mistreated me for someone else
When the sun go down

Now good bye old sweethearts and pals
Yes, I'm goin' away
But I may be back to see you, girl
Some old rainy day
Well in the ev'nin', in the ev'nin',
Mama when the sun go down
