It's a Long Lane that Has No Turn.
Copyright, 1889, by White, Smith & Co.
Words and Music by Dan Lyons.

As we journey along through this life,
Over the land And the sea,
Hard luck and sorrow will come to us all,
Where'er on this earth we may be.
Never despair, but drive away care,
We've all got a lesson to learn.
You'll say that I'm right, when I tell you to-night,
It's a long lane that has no turn.

Then borrow no trouble where'er you may be,
Look at hard luck brave and stern;
If it does not to-day, it will soon come your way.
It's a long lane that has no turn.

For instance, a man he may run in hard luck
The biggest part of his days.
When Dame Fortune's wheel it will stop at his heel,
And his eyes on a fortune will gaze.
So be of good cheer, all thro' the long year,
Don't cry at a scald or a burn.
And some day, like me, you will surely agree,
It's a long lane that has no turn.-Chorus.

Now take this lesson unto yourself,
Try and do all that you can;
If hard luck And sorrow stares you in the face,
Don't mind it, brace up like a man.
Some day it will fall good luck to us all
If the good will of God we all earn;
You'll find in the end that the lane it will bend.
It's a long one that has no turn.-Chorus.
