lyrics

Sundowner

Before sky was a word
I read my mother’s eyes
Dad’s voice arrived along by night
The moon was his faithful dog
It followed him to town and back
Could you ever keep a friend like that
Seems you want it, is why I ask

You can’t make them stay
You can’t teach the wind to lay
even if the moon is your dad’s old dog
I heard you when you said it
I’m sunk if I doubt the tide
When peace came to my heart it came to hide

Running in a wetsuit, going with the flow
guitar promising daddy’s coming home

Sundowner for life
all colors, then night
Sinking your hat over your eyes
saying, Y’all, the stars go where they like

Sundowner for life
tripped out on living light
Rainbow blanket tight around you
Under the moon the colors all look blue

Thunder and summer are sister and brother
The rain make us wait
Drought is why I ever learned to pray
Make the road dark
kill the dust, steam off the engine’s hood
cool my sister’s neck and make her smile
Those clouds are downway twenty miles

It’s not what you say, it’s what you do
Fix your house when a storm rolls through
All that charm will chill you because it’s easy
I heard you when you said it
and took along your clearer skies
When peace came to my heart it came to hide

Running in a wetsuit, going with the flow
guitar promising daddy’s coming home

Sundowner for life
all colors, then night
It’s not falling if somebody catches you
The way you say it, sure sounds true

Sundowner for life
taking it to the ground in a fight
Why can’t it just be you and your old girl on your arm
They’re gonna ask for more, and then some
