Lonesome Road Blues TML # 006221
Click Play Speed Slow 1/4=110 Medium 1/4=170 Fast 1/4=220

This is one of those songs that appears in many guitar and banjo tutors but you don't actually hear it played very much. Which is a pity because it's a nice song particularly if you bend a few notes to get a bluesy feel sound best played fairly fast.
I'm going down that long lonesome road, Lord, Lord,
Going down that long lonesome road.
I'm going down that long lonesome road, Lord, Lord,
And I ain't going to be treated this way.

I'm going down that road felling bad,
Going down that road feeling bad
Going down that road feeling bad, Lord, Lord
And I ain't going to be treated this way.

Two dollar shoes on my feet x2
Two dollar shoes on my feet, Lord, Lord
And I ain't going to be treated this way.
Ten dollar shoes fit me fine x2
Ten dollar shoes fit me fine, Lord, Lord
And I ain't going to be treated this way.

Going where the climate fits my clothes x2
Going where the climate fits my clothes, Lord, Lord
And I ain't going to be treated this way.

They feed me on cornbread and beans x2
They feed me on cornbread and beans, Lord, Lord
And I ain't going to be treated this way.
