Highway of sorrow

I once had a darlin' wife and true and sweet
Life was so bright and gay everything complete
Then I fell for another who led my life astray
Now I'll live in sorrow till my dying day

    Down the highway of sorrow I'm travelin' alone
    I've lost all my true friends I've lost a happy home
    I'm headed for destruction I'm on the wrong track
    Down the highway of sorrow there's no turning back

Then I went back to my darling and I got down on my knees
I begged her with tear dimmed eyes to give my poor heart ease
But she was hurt so deeply she could not forgive
Now I'll live in sorrow as I live

  * Refrain

  * Refrain
    Down the highway of sorrow there's no turning back
