Sunset Man
(James Otto / Shannon Lawson / John Rich)

I used to wake up early every day
Just to feel the sunrise on my face
Me and my woman in the front porch swing
Listenin to the mornin mockingbird sing
Well I woke one day to a screen door slam
Found a good-bye note on our nightstand
Next to a coffee cup and a wedding band
Since then Ive been a sunset man

Chorus:
When I see the sunrise comin up
I draw the curtains down
Cause the mornin brings her memory around
I know its warm and beautiful and lights up the sky
But these days it only hurts my eyes

I dont show my face to the afternoon
Anything A.M. is just too soon
Cause it reminds how she up and ran
And damned me to be a sunset man

Chorus

Its hard not to cry but Ill do my best
And just keep this ole chair facin west
Till she puts that ring back on her hand
I guess Ill always be a sunset man

Well Ill always be a sunset man
Yeah Ill always be a sunset man
