LONESOME MOUNTAIN BLUES


(intro)

Don't hear nothin'
On Lonesome Mountain
They don't bring me the news
So much pain
On Lonesome Mountain
Thought I'd paid my dues.

You said you'd leave
From Lonesome Mountain
I missed all of the clues
When you up and left
Away from here
You left me with the blues.

CHORUS
I'm all alone
On Lonesome Mountain
All alone with the blues
It's lonesome here
On Lonesome Mountain
(Lonesome Mountain Blues.)

(interlude)

Ain't got nothin'
On Lonesome Mountain
Ain't nothin' left to lose
You took it all
When you went away
Left nothin' but the blues.

They all tell me
Not to drink
That moonshine that they brew
But if I were blind
And stumblin' I'd
Still see those lonesome blues.

CHORUS
All is sadness
On Lonesome Mountain
No comfort from the booze
My only hope
On Lonesome Mountain
(Lonesome Mountain Blues.)

(interlude)

God is here
On Lonesome Mountain
I see Him in the views
But you're not here
On Lonesome Mountain
So I got those lonesome blues.

CHORUS
I'm all alone
On Lonesome Mountain
All alone with the blues
It's lonesome here
On Lonesome Mountain
(Lonesome Mountain Blues.)

(finale)
