I learned this song at camp in about 1973 or 1974. The lyrics that I recall went like this:

Verse My seed is sown now My field is plowed My (something something) now My (something something) So hurry sundown Be on your way And speed me a sunup For this beat-up sundown day

Chorus Hurry down, sundown Be on your way Weave me tomorrow Out of today

Ring a bell with anyone?

HURRY SUNDOWN
(Robinson / Harburg)

My seed is sown now, my field is plowed
My flesh is bone now, my back is bowed

So hurry, sundown, be on your way
And hurry me a sun-up from this beat-up sundown day
Hurry down, sundown, be on your way
Weave me tomorrow out of today

Tomorrow's breeze now, blows clear and loud
I'm off my knees now, I'm standing proud

So hurry, sundown, be on your way...

My sorrow's song, now, just must break through
That brave new dawn, now, long overdue

So hurry, sundown, be on your way...

Hurry down, sundown, get thee be gone
Get lost in the sunrise, of a new dawn
Hurry down, sundown, take the old day
Wrap it in new dreams, send it my way!
Send it my way, send it my way!
