Lonesome Road

Lonesome Road

Look up, look down that lonesome road
Hang down your little head and cry my love,
Hang down your head and cry

The best of friends must part some day
And why not you and I my love,
And why not you and I

The longest train I ever did see
Was on that Georgia line my love,
Was on that Georgia line

The only girl I've ever loved
Is on that train and gone my love,
Is on that train and gone

The darkest night I ever saw
Was the night I left my home love,
Was the  night I left my home

I never thought when we first met
This awful day would come my love,
This awful day would come.

**repeat first two verses again**"

This variation I found on a 1977 United Artists recording of
Doc & Merle Watson titled ""Lonesome Road"".
