sunday sounds | long monday {john prine}

Long Monday

You and me
Sittin’ in the back of my memory
Like a honey bee
Buzzin’ ’round a glass of sweet Chablis
The radio’s on
Windows rolled up
And my mind’s rolled down
Headlights shinin’
Like silver moons
Rollin’ on the ground
break-c
We made love
In everyway love can be made
And we made time
Look like time
Could never fade
Friday Night
We both made the guitar hum
Saturday made Sunday feel
Like it would never come
break-c

Gonna be a long Monday
Sittin’ all alone on a mountain
By a river that has no end
Gonna be a long Monday
Stuck like the tick of a clock
That’s come unwound – again

break-c

Soul to soul
Heart to heart
And cheek to cheek
Come on baby
Give me a kiss
That’ll last all week

break-c

The thought of you leavin’ again
Brings me down
The promise of
Your sweet love
Brings me around

break-c

It’s gonna be a long Monday
Sittin’ all alone on a mountain
By a river that has no end
It’s gonna be a long Monday
Stuck like the tick of a clock
That’s come unwound – again
And again
