Harry Belafonte – Hurry Sundown lyrics

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
