Sundown Blues

This song is by Alec Johnson and appears on the split compilation album Mississippi String Bands (1928-1936) (1989) by various artists.

I hate to see the evening sun go down
That's the time my baby left this town
I get the blues when the evening sun goes down

She was the meanest gal for miles around
Made me love her then she called me down
I feel so sad when the evening sun goes down

Now everybody's scorned me, with a frown
Since my baby left me broke in town
I sigh and cry when the evening sun goes down

My friends are scarce and they can not be found
'Cause my gal she quit and left this town
Oh, how I grieve when the evening sun goes down

Straight for the madhouse I'm surely bound
Thinkin' 'bout the gal who left this town
How I despair when the evening sun goes down

When shadows spread that dreary hue around
From afar I hear a doleful sound
My soul just weeps when the evening sun goes down
