I'm lonely, lonesome and alone In this hell I call my home Without a woman of my own Hell, I'm lonely, Hell, I'm lonesome, And alone. My heart is heavy on my mind What was yours once was mine Back when time was only time Now, I'm lonely Now, I'm lonesome And alone. With all the emptiness I feel I can't believe that this is real I don’t know if I can deal With being lonely, Being lonesome, And alone. Feeling lonely, Feeling lonesome, And alone.

If you could see my friends I had when I was dead Maybe one of them said To carry on? Now I'm standing there The smoke rolls high in the air And I just blindly stare At carry on But I can't stand it, runnin’ away And I can't love you When I stay Through every foggy morn With heartache, strife and scorn I just can't conform With carry on And every worthless night When I can see no light I put up a fight With carry on But I can't stand it, runnin’ away And I can't love you When I stay Sure, I've been ton down Hell, I been pushed around And stumble through this town Of carry on Come one sunny day I'll put that bottle away And bid goodbye to the fray And carry on But I can't stand it, runnin’ away And I can't love you When I stay

I am alone right now But I will find me a way out. I'll walk this land, ‘cause it's the land I love Until I find me a way out. I'd tell the walls that I am free, But then they'd smile and laugh at me. It may be true that I’m a well-kept man Until I find me a way out. I'll tell you all that I am free, But then you'd smile and laugh at me. It may be true, I was a well-kept man Until I found me a way out

I bet your name is something pretty Give me your number ‘cause I'm comin’ round Sit by my side, tell me your stories I'll tell you mine ‘cause I'm comin’ round Well, I made up my mind No matter what you do I'm just biding my time Like a bird in the morning dew Whip up some stew and I'll bring the cards Put on your best ‘cause I'm comin’ round Don't buy new candles don't trim the yard Just start smiling cause I'm comin’ round

To my credit I can't help my situation To my mother I send this lonely invitation No matter the streets I've roamed, I wanna be back home Please don't think on the wretched things I've done You see, it don't seem that I've got too much time I recognize the years you ain't been on my mind. But I'll make it through that door, though my back and legs are sore And all I'm bringin’ is the ragged clothes I wore Mother, I know it’s five years since you've gone Mother, I know that I'm your only son I still feel the love you gave It's been floating in the waste I'll bring it back, though it may be from my grave It's taken all this to know I've let you down It's taken all this to get my feet close to the ground Though I still deny the news I'll come crawling home to you I'll get there with the blood that's in my shoes There's blackened dust on the walls in here In my cell thinkin’ all my fears are gone Devil, spare me just one day? Will you lend me just a single way to mourn? It's morning time when they'll shave off all my hair. Morning time when they'll lay me in that chair Please hold the gates for me When they cut me free Out into that black and raging sea

Well, on the other end of that telephone, I can feel it coming through I can hear the sighs, I can see your eyes when I tell you "I've had a few" Hell, I don't mean no disrespect but I'm better than before And you and I know it'd be a stretch to say I'll have no more. And please don't you read them old love notes, they don't mean a thing no more Just leave ‘em sit in that old shoe box Beyond that closet door We've been through rough old this and that but them cloudy times are through I just wanna let you know where I'm at, my rowdy love is true. Why don't we leave them bygone years back there where they belong? Forget your fears and forget your tears, this time I can't be wrong I'll keep workin’ on cleanin’ up my act that keeps you gone If you just try and set aside what keeps you movin’ on. And please don't you read them old love notes, they don't mean a thing no more Just leave ‘em sit in that old shoe box Beyond that closet door We've been through rough old this and that but them cloudy times are through I just wanna let you know where I'm at, my rowdy love is true.

When the world falls down On my town Just one place left for me And when all my injuries Move back in Just one way I will bend My body. That drifter owes me money Eight years’ rent He better stay where he went Well, I can't chase nobody down Like I did But I'll bust him to the ground Yes, I will. But all my time is mine All my money is mine And I'll sit down in my chair. I know every little inch Of this place Better than my own wife's face So God bless her soul That she stayed Winters here are cold And lonely.

Give me one reason to stand So I can be more of a man The nights and the days are more of the same Give me one reason to stop so I can come out on top I'm set in my ways It's time for a change But I don't need a savior, I need a friend Someone to lean on until the end I need an enemy, someone I can blame Something to cover up all the shame All the shame Just when I'm calling it quits Someone to show me new tricks An old dog can learn if you give him a chance Just when I step out of line Something to help me find a reason to stop and a reason to stand But I don't need a savior, I need a friend Someone to lean on until the end I need an enemy, someone I can blame Something to cover up all the shame All the shame

West to east I'm gonna ride today Cause you miss me babe, I know it but you just won't say You miss me babe, I know it but you just won't say Few more hours and I'll be Jersey bound Few more hours ‘til I bid goodbye to this town Well I told you darlin’ once again I'd see you around I told you darlin’ once again I'd see you around I did the best that I knew but you've up and gone I thought you loved me too but baby I was wrong Down in this dusty ole creek bed I have grown And I just made up my mind I'm comin’ home Seems the storm’s been closing on my tail Seems the storm’s been reading all my mail Gotta keep my heels from the wolves runnin’ on this trail Gotta keep my heels from the wolves runnin’ on this trail Steel frame gonna carry me through the rain Gasoline is runnin’ through my veins Ain't no mountain or valley or river gonna stop this train Ain't no mountain or valley or river gonna stop this train I did the best that I knew but you've up and gone I thought you loved me too but baby I was wrong Down in this dusty ole creek bed I have grown And I just made up my mind I'm comin’ home Gasoline’s runnin through my veins

Got a broken spoke on my wagon wheel My horse is lookin’ kinda bad Two men robbed my camp last fall And took all the money I had. Got a gun slung round as fine as can be But there’s no powder left in my horn Went to hunt for some grub and I took to the trees But I fell in the briars and thorns. My whiskey bottle's getting’ empty My boots I'm wearin’ kinda thin Won't take much but to look in my eyes You can see the state that I'm in. My jacket was handed down from my pa You could read a book through the holes My best friend stole my pocket knife And stuck it right into my soul. I got one bad knee and the other ain't good I'm walkin’ around with a cane I like playin’ poker and I would if I could Get some money to buy in the game. My whiskey bottle's getting empty My boots wearin’ right though Things ain't goin’ my way you see But I'm glad I'm sitting with you. I'm an old rusty nail There’s no wind in my sail But I'm glad to be here with you.
