Sun Don’t Shine

the sun don’t shine here no more​
my heart is cold and feeling sore​
no, the sun don’t shine here no more​
I’ve gotta find my way to a different shore

my man’s gone lookin’ around again
lookin’ for some other woman
my man he’s gone lookin’ around again
But this time, I ain’t waitin’ around for him

I think I’ll head south down to Mexico
And find myself one of them bungalows
I think I’ll head on south down to Mexico
and I ain’t coming back till I feel whole

I loved you babe with all my heart
now I’m thinking you aren’t so smart
I loved you babe with all my heart
but it’s lookin’ now like it’s time to part

the sun don’t shine like it did before​
my heart was cold and feeling sore​
no, the sun don’t shine like it did before​
I’m gonna find my way to a different shore
