My seed is sown now, my field is plowed
My flesh is bone now, my back is bowed

So hurry, sundown, be on your way
And hurry me a sun-up from this beat-up sundown day
Hurry down, sundown, be on your way
Weave me tomorrow out of today

Tomorrow’s breeze now, blows clear and loud
I’m off my knees now, I’m standing proud

So hurry, sundown, be on your way
And hurry me a sun-up from this beat-up sundown day
Hurry down, sundown, be on your way
Weave me tomorrow out of today

My sorrow’s song, now, just must break through
That brave new dawn, now, long overdue

So hurry, sundown, be on your way
And hurry me a sun-up from this beat-up sundown day
Hurry down, sundown, be on your way
Weave me tomorrow out of today

Hurry down, sundown, get thee be gone
Get lost in the sunrise, of a new dawn
Hurry down, sundown, take the old day
Wrap it in new dreams, send it my way
Send it my way
Send it my way
