"In the Evening" as written by and Leroy Authur Carr....
In the evening
In the evening
Mama when the sun go down
In the evening darling
I declare when the sun go down
Yeah it's so lonesome it's so lonesome
I declare when the one you love is not around
When the sun go down

Last night I were layin' sleepin'
And I declare I was sleepin' all by myself
Last night I were layin' sleepin' darling
And I declare I was sleepin' all by myself
Yeah but the one, the one that I was really in love with
I declare she was sleepin' someplace else
When the sun go down

Yeah, ooh ooh ooh wee
Yeah, ooh ooh ooh wee
Yes the one that I was in love with
I declare she was sleepin' someplace else
When the sun go down

The sun rises in the East
And I declare it sets way over in the West
Sun rises in the East darling
And I declare it sets way over in the West
Yes it's so hard, it's so hard to tell
I declare which one that'll treat you the best
When the sun go down

Now goodbye, old sweethearts and pals
Yes I declare I'm goin' away
I may be back to see you again
Little girl some old rainy day
Yes in the evening in the evening
I declare when the sun go down
When the sun go down
