I'm traveling down this lonesome road, oh, how I hate to go
The wind and storms are raging high and it's awful cold
My mind drifts back to you, sweetheart, and I love you so
Now you've gone and left me here to travel this lonesome road

I remember dear, not long ago, you said you'd be my own
I never thought you'd go away and leave me all alone
The kind of love you had for me, I find sweetheart, grows cold
For now you've gone and left me here to travel this lonesome road

I'm traveling down this lonesome road, oh, how I hate to go
The wind and storms are raging high and it's awful cold
My mind drifts back to you, sweetheart, and I love you so
Now you've gone and left me here to travel this lonesome road

All I do is roam around and look for you, my dear
I know I'll search ten thousand miles, oh, how I need you, dear
You broke my heart, you left me here, now I'm growing old
Why did you go and leave me here to travel this lonesome road?

I'm traveling down this lonesome road, oh, how I hate to go
The wind and storms are raging high and it's awful cold
My mind drifts back to you, sweetheart, and I love you so
Now you've gone and left me here to travel this lonesome road
