Lyrics: Sunset Woman

Long-haired harlot
She come a-dancin'
Eyes on her chances
I know her kind
Ribbons of scarlet
I seen 'em untangling
Wrapping around a poor boy's mind

Sunset woman, nobody needs you
You're a worthless woman
An aging overnight friend
Sunset woman, nobody needs to
Be drowned in a wishing well of sin

Rock 'n' Roll Tavern
Well, she's like a fixture there
Looking to pull a stare
From the five o'clock crowd
Finding no takers
For yesterday's paper
She leaves and takes the back door out


Lord, those mistress eyes
Destiny she's leaving
Her youth was burned
The heads she once turned
Well, they were gone
And Lord, give her my smile
And a coat to sow her savin'
And see for me she finds her way back home


Be drowned in a wishing well of sin
Nobody wants to be drowned in a wishing well of sin
