    Lyrics

    (Kris Kristofferson)

    Well, I woke up Sunday mornin' with no way
    To hold my head that didn't hurt
    And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad
    So I had one more for desert.

    Then I fumbled through my closet to my clothes
    And found my cleanest dirty shirt
    And I shaved my face and combed my hair
    Stumbled down the stair to meet the day.

    Well, I'd smoke my mind the night before
    With cigarettes and songs that I'd been picking
    But I lit my first and watched the small kid
    Cussing the can that he was kicking.

    Then I crossed the empty street and caught
    The Sunday smell of someone frying chicken
    And it took me back to somethin'
    That I'd lost somehow, somewhere along the way.

    On the Sunday morning sidewalk
    Wishing Lord, that I was stoned
    'Cause there's something in a Sunday
    Makes a body feel alone.

    And there's nothing sure to dying
    Half as lonesome as the sound
    On the sleeping city sidewalk
    And Sunday morning coming down.

    In the park I saw a daddy
    With the laughin' little girl that he was swinging
    Then I stopped beside a Sunday school
    Listened to the songs they were singing.

    I headed back for home and somewhere far away
    A lonely bell was ringing
    And it echoed through the canyons
    Like the disappearing dreams of yesterday.

    On the Sunday morning sidewalk
    Wishing Lord, that I was stoned
    'Cause there's something in a Sunday
    Makes a body feel alone...
