B.W. STEVENSON lyrics - Sunset Woman

B.W. STEVENSON
"Sunset Woman"
(Dave Loggins)

Long haired Harlot,
She come a-dancin'
Eyes on her chances
I know her kind

Ribbons of scarlet
I've seen 'em untanglin'
And wrappin around
A poor boy's mind

Sunset Woman
Nobody needs you
You're a worthless woman
An agin' overnight friend

Sunset Woman
Nobody needs to
Be drowned
In a wishin' well of sin

Rock 'n' Roll tavern
She's just like a fixture there

Looking to pull a stare
From the 5 o'clock crowd

Findin' no takers
For yesterdays papers
She leaves,
And takes the back door out

Sunset Woman
Nobody needs you.
You're a worthless woman.
An agin' overnight friend.

Sunset Woman
Nobody needs to
Be drowned
In your wishin' well of sin

Ah, but Lord, those mistress eyes
Destiny she's leavin'
Her youth was burned
The heads she once turned- they're gone
Lord give her my smile
And a coat to sew her savin'
And see for me to find a way back home
Sunset Woman nobody needs you
You're a worthless woman- an agin' overnight friend
Sunset Woman nobody needs to
Be drowned in a wishin' well of sin
Oh,be drowned in a wishin' well of sin
Nobody wants to be drowned in a wishin' well of sin
