Mudlark Lyr Req: In the Evening, When the Sun Goes Down (24) RE: Lyr Req: In The Evening, When The Sun Goes Down 13 Jan 06


Hi, Folktheatre...welcome to Mudcat!

I love this song, love Leadbelly...here is the version I do

Every night, (or every evenin') when the sun goes in (or down)
Every night when the sun goees does down
Every night, when the sun...goes...down
I hang my head, and mournful cry


True love don't weep, true love dont mourn
True love don't weep, true love dont mourn
True love dont weep, and dont you mourn for me
I'm going back to Marble Town

It's once miy apron hung down low (x 3)
He'd ollow me through sleet and snow...

It's now my apron's to my chine (x3)
He'll face my door but wont come in

I wish to the Lord my babe was born
A-sittin' upon his papa's knee
And me, poor girl, was dead and gone
And the green green grass, growing over me

(C)Every evenin (C) (Am) (Dm7) When the (G7) sun goesn down(C)...(Am)
(C) Every evening(C) (Em) G7)When the (c7) sun goes (C) down
(C) E((C7)very (F7)evenin'....when the (G7) sun (E7) goes (Am) down
I hang(C) my head (Em)...AmlllDm7 and (G7) mournful (C) cry.

It's a heartbreaking and beautiful song!.
