HIGH LONESOME
High in a tree on the top of the hill
By the light of the lonesome ol' moon
I hear the call of a lone whipporwill
Singing his mournful tune
Way off in the night blows the long freight train
With a roar and a ramble of wheels
My poor heart is breaking with every refrain
‘cause it sounds just like the way I feel
And it's high lonesome
High lonesome heartbroken and blue
High lonesome
Lil' darling I'm lonesome for you
(musique)
Do you ever get weary roamin' around
Do you think of the sweet love we knew
Do you ever get lonesome the way I am now
Lil' darling I'm lonesome for you
And it's high lonesome
High lonesome heartbroken and blue
It's a high lonesome
Lil' darling I'm lonesome for you
It's high lonesome
Lil' darling I'm lonesome for you
