Waitin' On Sundown (Radio Version)

In the style of

Andy Griggs

Lyrics

jimmy was waitin' on
shelby jean
in the parkin' lot
at the dairy queen

he knew
she's gonna
be there soon
then they'll
blow this town
like a cheap balloon

she came in cryin'
this mornin'
at the store
said i swear jimmy
i just can't
take no more

so he quit his job
and drew his pay
now he's
helpin' shelby
make her getaway

and oh
sittin' on go
waitin' on sundown
waitin' on sundown

no more beatin's
to be denied
no more bruises
that makeup can't hide

all these years
she's tried to
love that man
but all
he ever gave her
was the back
of his hand

now jimmy's
a young boy
just out of his teens
so many things
that he still
hasn't seen

but he's old enough
to know wrong
from right
that's why
he's helpin' shelby
make her break
tonight

and oh
sittin' on go
waitin' on sundown
waitin' on sundown
waitin' on sundown

drove all night
drove all day
jimmy listened
to everything
shelby had to say

how she'd suffered
at her lover's hand
he said honey
i wanna
change all that
if i can

they pulled over
to take a little rest
shelby put
her head down on
jimmy's chest

and she could
hear the beatin'
of his heart
and it sounded like
the rhythm of
a brand-new start

and oh
she's gonna
let him know
she's waitin'
on sundown

she's just
waitin' on sundown
yeah they're
waitin' on sundown
waitin' on sundown
