Everybody's got to [G]walk that lonesome valley,

they’ve got to [D]walk it by their [G]selves.

There's nobody [C]here can walk it [G]for them,

they've got to walk[D]       it by their [G]selves.

 

My father's got to walk that lonesome valley,

he's got to walk it by his self.

There's nobody here can walk it for him,

he's got to walk       it by his self.

 

My mother's got to walk that lonesome valley

she's got to walk it by her self.

There's nobody here can walk it for her,

she's got to walk      it by her self.

 

My brother's got to walk that lonesome valley,

he's got to walk it by his self.

There's nobody here can walk it for him,

he's got to walk      it by his self.

 

Most sinners got to walk this lonesome valley,

they’ve got to walk it by their selves.

There's nobody here can walk it for them,

they've got to walk      it by their selves.
