Lonesome Road Blues


I walked on down that lonesome line

Hung my head and I cried

I wept and I cried under a willow tree

Out by the deep blue sea

My mama, my dear papa can be found,

And my brother on a county road

Now I been down that long plank walk,

I?m on my way back home


You cause me to weep, you do cause me to moan

You cause me to leave my home

I cried last night and the night before

I swear I won?t cry anymore


Your fast mail train comin round that track

Killed my brown eyed boy

They took him down that smokey track

Brought him back on a cooling board

Now I?m lookin down that lonesome line

Just as far as I care to see

I have no money lost my brown eyed boy

These blues won?t set me free


You do cause me to weep, you do cause me to moan

You cause me to leave my home

I cried last night and the night before

I swear I won?t cry anymore
