Highway of Sorrow
I once had a darling wife kind, true and sweet Life was so bright and gay everything complete But I fell for another who led my life astray So I'll live in sorrow till my dying day Down the highway of sorrow I'm traveling alone I've lost all my true friends I've lost a happy home I'm heading for destruction I'm on the wrong track Down the highway of sorrow there's no turning back I went back to my darling I got down on my knees I begged her with tear rimmed eyes to give my poor heart ease But she was hurt so deeply she could not forgive So I'll live in sorrow as I long as I live
