In the Evening
(Leroy Carr)

In the evenin', in the evenin', baby when the sun goes down
In the evenin', in the evenin', baby when the sun goes down
Ain't it lonesome, ain't it lonesome, when your lover can't be found.
When the sun goes down.

Last night I lay a-sleepin', thinkin' to myself
Last night I lay a-sleepin', thinkin' to myself
Well I thought she loved me, found she loved somebody else
When the sun went down

Well the sun rises in the east, sets down in the west
Well the sun rises in the east, sets down in the west
Lord, ain't it hard to tell. Hard to tell which one will treat you the best
When the sun goes down.

[When the party's all over, baby, an' all the liquor's gone dry,
A man gets to thinkin', a man is born to die
In the evenin', in the evenin, baby when the sun goes down
When the sun goes down.]*

Goodbye my sweet and lovin' baby, you know I'm goin' away
Be back to see you, some old rainy day.
Well, in the evenin', in the evenin, baby when the sun goes down
When the sun goes down.

*verse sung by Joe Williams, not in Carr's original. RG
