Capo 2nd fret

      E
I can see her lying back in her satin dress
     B7                         E
In a room where you do what you don't confess
               A
Sundown, you'd better take care
     D                                E
If I find you've been creeping 'round my back stairs
               A
Sundown, you'd better take care
     D                                E
If I find you've been creeping 'round my back stairs

           E
She's been looking like a queen in a sailor's dream
        B7                        E
And she don't always say what she really means
            A
Sometimes I think it's a shame
       D                           E
When I get feeling better when I'm feeling no pain
            A
Sometimes I think it's a shame
       D                           E
When I get feeling better when I'm feeling no pain

      E
I can picture every move that a man could make
        B7                         E
Getting lost in her loving is your first mistake
               A
Sundown, you'd better take care
     D                                E
If I find you've been creeping 'round my back stairs
            A
Sometimes I think it's a sin
       D                              E
When I feel like I'm winning when I'm losing again

Solo : E

      E
I can see her looking fast in her faded jeans
        B7                        E
She's a hard-loving woman, got me feeling mean
            A
Sometimes I think it's a shame
       D                           E
When I get feeling better when I'm feeling no pain
               A
Sundown, you'd better take care
     D                                E
If I find you've been creeping 'round my back stairs
               A
Sundown, you'd better take care
     D                                E
If I find you've been creeping 'round my back stairs

            A
Sometimes I think it's a sin
       D                              E
When I feel like I'm winning when I'm losing again
