"Hurry Sundown" as written by Earl Robinson and E. Y. Harburg....
My seed is sown now, my field is plouwed,
my flesh is bone now, my back is bowed.

So hurry sundown, be on your way,
and hurry me a sun-up from this beat-up sundown day.
Hurry down sundown, be on your way,
weave me tomorrow out of today.

Tomorrow's breeze now blows clear and loud;
I'm off my knees now, I'm standing proud. (Refrain)

My sorrow’s song now, just must break through
that brave new dawn now long overdue. (Refrain)

Hurry down sundown, get thee be gone,
get lost in the sunrise of a new dawn.
Hurry down sundown, take the old day
wrap it in new dreams, send it my way!
send it my way, send it my way!
