Submit Corrections Cancel

Jimmy was waitin' on Shelby Jean
In the parkin' lot, at the dairy queen
He knew she's gonna be there soon
And 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 is 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)
Waitin' on sundown
(Waitin' on sundown)
They're just waitin' on sundown
