Lonesome Homesick Blues


I've got the lonesome homesick blues

I've got them bad babe down in my shoes

I left someone there that I might lose

That's why I've got these old homesick blues


It makes me homesick to hear your name

And hold you dear in my arms again

I'm a gonna ride that old lonesome train

To the one I left back in Maces Spring


You told me once dear you loved me so

And it's on my mind dear every where I go

I'll soon be knowing if it is so

Or has your love for me grown cold


Oh listen to that old lonesome train

It's a gonna carry me back again

To the one that told me their love was true

I'll spend the rest of my days with you


I've been away babe a long long time

Now I'm riding down this old railroad line

And the one I love there I hope to find

To ease this lonesome blue heart of mine
