The night was black, the roads were icy 
Snow was fallin', drifts were high
And I was weary from my driving
And I stopped to rest for awhile

I sat down at a truck stop
I was thinking about my past
I've had a long streak of that bad luck
But I'm praying it's gone at last

[Chorus]
Gone at last, gone at last 
Gone at last, gone at last
I had a long streak of bad luck
But I pray it's gone at last
Oo, oo, oo... 

I ain't dumb
I kicked around some
I don't fall too easily 
But that boy looked so dejected 
He just grabbed my sympathy

Sweet little soul now, what's your problem?
Tell me why you're so downcast 
I've had a long streak of bad luck 
But I pray it's gone at last

[Chorus]

Once in a while from out of nowhere
When you don't expect it, and you're unprepared
Somebody will come and lift you higher
And your burdens will be shared

Yes I do believe, if I hadn't met you 
I might still be sinking fast
I've had a long streak of that bad luck
But I pray it's gone at last 

[Chorus]
