               D  Let Ring  D  PAUSE   U  D  U   U

 
E5                           
I can see her lyin' back in her satin dress
     B7                       E5
In a room where ya do what ya don't confess
           A
Sundown ya better take care
     D                            E5
If I find you bin creepin' 'round my back stairs
           A                 
Sundown ya better take care
     D                            E
If I find you bin creepin' 'round my back stairs
E                                
She's bin lookin' like a queen in a sailor's dream
        B7                        E
And she don't always say what she really means
            A          
Sometimes I think it's a shame
       D                           E5
When I get feelin' better when I'm feelin' no pain
            A
Sometimes I think it's a shame    
 D                           E5
When I get feelin' better when I'm feelin' no pain
E5                                      
I can picture every move that a man could make
        B7                         E5
Getting lost in her lovin' is your first mistake
           A
Sundown ya better take care
     D                            E
If I find you bin creepin' 'round my back stairs
            A         
Sometimes I think it's a sin
       D                              E5
When I feel like I'm winnin' when I'm losin again

instr:

E5        
I can see her lookin' fast in her faded jeans
        B7                        E5
She's a hard lovin' woman, got me feelin' mean
            A     
Sometimes I think it's a shame
       D                           E5
When I get feelin' better when I'm feelin' no pain
           A
Sundown ya better take care
     D                            E5
If I find you bin creepin' 'round my back stairs
           A
Sundown ya better take care
     D                            E5
If I find you bin creepin' 'round my back stairs
            A
Sometimes I think it's a sin
       D                              E5
When I feel like I'm winnin' when I'm losin' again
