"Hurry Sundown" as written by and Hughie Thomasson....
Gypsy's dance around the campfire, shook their tambourines
They were waiting for the dust of an outlaw, Sundown was his name
As the midnight hour grew closer, and the sky begins to fall
You can see their shadow by the light of the moon
They had heard the gypsys call
CHORUS
Ooh, ooh, Hurry Sundown
She had hair as black as darkness, eyes of emerald green
And her voice was soft and tender, oooh she could sing
She will sing no more, or dance again or shake a tambourine
They had taken her away, she was dead and gone, hear the gypsies sing
CHORUS
Silver devils in his holsters, stars strapped to his heels
There was fire in his eyes, they say that he was dressed to kill
He had hands as fast as lightning, a heart as cold as steel
He had come for the one that took her life, lying in Boothill
CHORUS
(Repeat first verse)

    General CommentI can't believe nobody commented on this song! If ever there was a great southern rock song, this is it. A guitar great telling an intriguing western tale and tearing it up on the guitar. A simple story of love and revenge artistically interpreted to perfection. R.I.P Hughie Thomasson
