It's A Long, Long Road To Travel Alone


I always thought I'd like to roam

One day I started alone

Out in this old wide wicked world

Away from friends and home


It's a long long road to travel alone

And when the day is gone

No place to pillow my head at night

Only on the cold cold stone


I've rambled around from town to town

Now it's time that I settled down

I've had my fill of rambling around

And now I am homeward bound


One day a letter came to me

And this is what it read

Come home my boy to the old homestead

Your father and mother are dead


It's been a long road to travel alone

I wish I had never roamed

I thought I'd soon see my mother and dad

But now I am left alone
