I just don't like this kind of livin' when nobody's lonesome for me
I'm headin' down the long lost highway may you never be alone like me
Your cold cold crazy cheatin' heart gave me the lovesick blues
I can't help it if you win again you know I still want you
I'd like to turn back the years when we heard the weddin' bells chime
When I was howlin' at the moon and your cheatin' heart was mine
A mansion on the hill is a house without love
Why don't you love me like you used to do
You're gonna change or I'm a gonna leave but I could never be ashamed of you
I hear that lonesome whistle blowing never again will I knock on your door
I'm sorry for you my friend but why should we try anymore
Jambalaya and ol' Kaw-Liga go on and set the woods on fire
From now on you'll be moanin' the blues for I'm a long gone daddy now
