The
night was black the, roads were icy Snow
was fallin' drifts, were high And
I was weary from, my driving And
I stopped to rest for a while I
sat down at a truck stop I
was thinking about my past I've
had a long streak of bad luck But
I'm praying it's gone at last Gone

gone, at last gone, at last Gone
at last gone, at last I
had a long streak of that bad luck But
I'm prayin' it's gone at last 00
oo, oo, oo, oo, I

ain't dumb I
kicked around some I
don't fall too easily But
that boy looked so dejected He
just grabbed my sympathy Sweet
little soul now what's, your problem Tell?
me why you're so downcast I've
had a long streak of bad luck But
I'm praying it's gone at last Gone

gone, at last gone, at last Gone
at last gone, at last I
had a long streak of that bad luck But
I'm prayin' it's gone at last 00
oo, oo, oo, oo, Once

in a while from out of nowhere When
you don't expect it and, you're unprepared Somebody
will come and lift you higher And
your burdens will be shared Yes
I do believe if, I hadn't met you I
might still be sinking fast I've
had a long streak of bad luck But
I'm praying it's gone at last Gone

gone, gone, at last Gone
at last gone, at last I
had a long streak of that bad luck But
I'm prayin' it's gone at last Gone
gone, gone, gone gone gone Gone
gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, I
had a long streak of that bad luck But
I'm prayin' it's gone at last
