Gypsies danced around the campfire, they shook their tambourines
They were waitin' for the ghost of an outlaw, Sundown was his name
As the midnight hour grew closer and the sky began to fall
You could see his shadow in the light of the moon
He had heard the gypsies call

She had hair as black as darkness, her eyes were emerald green
Oh, her voice was soft and tender, ooh she loved to sing
She will sing no more, or dance again or shake her tambourines
They had taken her away, she was dead and gone
You could hear the gypsies sing

Ooh, hurry Sundown (the gypsies cried)
Ooh, hurry Sundown
Ooh, hurry Sundown (well, the gypsies cried)
Hurry Sundown

Ooh, hurry Sundown (the gypsies cried)
Ooh, hurry Sundown
Ooh, hurry Sundown (well, the gypsies cried)

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, to lie him in Boot Hill

Gypsies danced around the campfire, they shook their tambourines
They were waitin' for the ghost of an outlaw, Sundown was his name
As the midnight hour grew closer and the sky began to fall
You can see their shadows in the light of the moon
They had heard the gypsies call

Ooh, hurry Sundown
Ooh, hurry Sundown
Ooh, hurry Sundown
Ooh, hurry Sundown
