James Otto Sunset Man Lyrics

Last updated: 06/16/2012 11:00:00 AM

I used to wake up early every day
Just to feel the sunrise on my face
Me and my woman in the front porch swing
Listenin' to the mornin' mockingbird sing
Well I woke one day to a screen door slam
Found a good-bye note on our nightstand
Next to a coffee cup and a wedding band
Since then I've been a sunset man

[Chorus:]
When I see the sunrise comin' up
I draw the curtains down
'Cause the mornin' brings her memory around
I know it's warm and beautiful and lights up the sky
But these days it only hurts my eyes

I don't show my face to the afternoon
Anything A.M. is just too soon
'Cause it reminds how she up and ran
And damned me to be a sunset man

[Chorus]

It's hard not to cry but I'll do my best
And just keep this ole chair facin' west
Till she puts that ring back on her hand
I guess I'll always be a sunset man

Well I'll always be a sunset man
Yeah I'll always be a sunset man
