She came up from the country with a smile for everyoneShe left her blue horizon just to find another homeA lonely girl who’d travelled many daysA lonely heart that could not find a way(chorus)And she said momma, it’s a hard life now you’re goneMomma, it’s so hard to carry onAnd I feel I’m a fool who lost it allYou used to make it all so very clearThat life must go on though the end is nearOh momma, it’s a sad and lonely lifeA misty morning rider she came wandering through the hillsA wanderin soul appearin over rainy window sillsA loser in her heart, but in her faceA smile for everyone under god’s grace(chorus)Midnight maiden madness, what to search for in this placeGateway to the city, night sky shadows on her faceA lady lost in nowhere but her stareLeaves the world, her life to start somewhere(chorus)
