The words and music of this song was wrote by Kris Kristofferson.

Capo 1st fret.

Verse 1

GWell I woke up Sunday morning
C D Gwith no way to hold my head that didn't hurt
Emand the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad
Dso I had one more for des-sert
G G7 Cthen I fumbled in my closet through my clothes
G Emand found my cleanest, dirty shirt
C Dthen I washed my face, and combed my hair
C D and stumbled down the stairs to meet the day
Verse 2
G G7I'd smoked my mind the night before
C D Gwith cigarettes and songs I'd been picking
Embut I lit my first and watched a small kid playing
Dwith the can that he was kicking
G G7then I walked across the street
C G Emand caught the Sunday smell of someone's frying chicken
C D Amand lord it took me back to some-thin that I lost somewhere
D Gsomehow along the way
Chorus
Con a Sunday morning sidewalk
GI'm wishing lord, that I was stoned
Dcause there's something in a Sunday
Gthat makes the body feel alone
Cand there's nothing short of dying
Gthat's half as lonesome as the sound
Dof the sleeping city sidewalks
Gand Sunday morning coming down
Verse 3
G7in the park I saw a daddy
C D Gwith a laughing little girl that he was swinging
and I stopped beside a Sunday school
Em Dand listened to the songs that they were singing
G G7then I headed down the street
C G Emand somewhere far away a lonely bell was ring - ing
C Dand it echoed through the canyons
Am D Glike our disappearing dreams of yester - day
Chorus 2 As chorus 1 rall. at end.
