about

"Sundown" is one of the most popular songs by Canadian folk artist Gordon Lightfoot. Released in March 1974, "Sundown" allowed Lightfoot to regain the momentum that his career had taken three years earlier with "If You Could Read My Mind" and other songs.

It reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and easy listening charts sand number thirteen on the Hot Country singles chart.

lyrics

I can see her lyin' back in her SATIN dress
In a room where ya do what ya don't confess
Sundown ya better take care
If I find you been creepin' 'round my back stairs
Sundown ya better take care
If I find you been creepin' 'round my back stairs
She's been lookin' like a queen in a sailor's dream
And she don't always say what she really means
Sometimes I think it's a shame
When I get feelin' better when I'm feelin' no pain
Sometimes I think it's a shame
When I get feelin' better when I'm feelin' no pain

I can picture every move that a man could make
Getting lost in her lovin' is your first mistake
Sundown ya better take care
If I find you been creepin' 'round my back stairs
Sometimes I think it's a sin
When I feel like I'm winnin' when I'm losin again

I can see her lookin' fast in her faded jeans
She's a hard lovin' woman, got me feelin' mean
Sometimes I think it's a shame
When I get feelin' better when I'm feelin' no pain
Sundown ya better take care
If I find you been creepin' 'round my back stairs
Sundown ya better take care
If I find you been creepin' 'round my back stairs
Sometimes I think it's a sin
When I feel like I'm winnin' when I'm losin' again

Sons of Butcher is a Canadian rock band and was once a cartoon series on Teletoon. Their music fuses vulgar absurdist comedy with rock music in a style that is described as "Tenacious D meets Spinal Tap". Ricky Butcher (vox/guitar/orgasms), Sol Butcher (guitar/vox/hugs) and Doug Borski (bass/vox/mop) are a fine-tuned machine on stage, throwing out slab after slab of raw, life-changing rock. ... more
