Capo 3!!! (key of Bb)

well i woke up sunday mornin
with no way to hold my head
             G     C  G
that didnt hurt
and the beer i had for breakfast wasnt
Em                         D, C, C/B, Asus
bad so i had one more for dessert
and i fumbled through my closet
B         C
for my clothes
                              G      Em
and found my cleanest dirty shirt
and i shaved my face

and combed my hair
and stumbled down the stairs
to meet the day

i'd smoked my brain the night before
cigarettes and songs
that i'd been pickin
but i lit my first and watched a small kid
cussin out a can he was kickin
then i crossed the empty streets and
cought the sunday smell
of someone fryin chicken
and it took me back to something
that i'd lost somehow
somewhere along the way

on the sunday mornin sidewalk
wishin lord that i was stoned
                            D   C   C/B   Asus
cause theres somethin in a sunday
that makes the body feel alone
 Em                          C
and theres nothin short of dyin
half as lonesome as the sound
                         D    C    C/B    Asus
on the sleepin city sidewalk
sunday mornin comin down

in the park i saw a daddy
with a laughin little girl
he was swingin
and i stopped beside
the sunday school
and listened to the song
that they were singin
then i headed back for home
and somewhere far away
a lonely bell was ringing
and it echoed through the
canyon like
the disappearing dreams
of yesterday

on the sunday mornin sidewalk
wishin lord that i was stoned
cause theres somethin in a sunday
that makes the body feel alone
and theres nothin short of dyin
half as lonesome as a sound
on the sleepin city sidewalk
sunday mornin comin down

Well that's it.

it is a bit different to the johnny cash and kris kristophersons versions,
but its really good fun to play, and its in a good key to sing along to.
