Verse 1

Well I woke up Sunday morning
        C              D                G
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 des-sert
       G                  G7                C
then I fumbled in my closet through my clothes 
                            G      Em
and found my cleanest, dirty shirt
       C                   D
then I washed my face, and combed my hair 
C                     D 
and stumbled down the stairs to meet the day

Verse 2
G                      G7
I'd smoked my mind the night before 
C                   D              G
with cigarettes and songs I'd been picking
but I lit my first and watched a small kid   playing
with the can that he was kicking
       G                 G7
then I walked across the street
               C                         G              Em
and caught the Sunday smell of someone's frying chicken
            C                    D           Am
and lord it took me back to some-thin that I lost somewhere
D                 G
somehow along the way

on a Sunday morning sidewalk
I'm wishing lord, that I was stoned
cause there's something in a Sunday
that makes the body feel alone
and there's nothing short of dying
that's half as lonesome as the sound
of the sleeping city sidewalks
and Sunday morning coming down

Verse 3
in the park I saw a daddy
       C               D                G
with a laughing little girl that he was swinging
and I stopped beside a Sunday school
    Em                                   D
and listened to the songs that they were singing
       G               G7
then I headed down the street 
              C                                 G    Em
and somewhere far away a lonely bell was ring - ing
       C                  D
and it echoed through the canyons
         Am           D                  G
like our disappearing dreams of yester - day
