Lonesome river

I sit here alone, oh the banks of the river
The lonesome wind blows, the water rolls high
I hear a voice call out there in the darkness
I sit here alone too lonesome to cry

    Oh the water rolls high on the river at midnight
    I sit on the ahore to weep and cry
    The woman I love she left me this morning
    With no one to love or kiss me good night

We met there one night on the banks of the river
We stood holding hands and making our vows
Swore we'd never part we'd be happy forever
But a new love she's found she'd gone from me now
