Stonewall Jackson – I Can't Go On Living This Way lyrics

Well my life seems such a mess and I don't know what to say
Said I can't go on a living this way
I'd like to go down to the river and drown me if I could
But I'd go down remembering so it wouldn't do no good
I'd like to leave this thought behind but it caught me every day
And I can't go on a living this way

Well I'm always a moanin' I'm always a groanin' I got these weary blues
I'm always a cryin' I'm always a sighin' it's always over you
Well I feel too bad to leave this town but I'm too sick to stay
Well I can't go on a living this way
[ piano ]
Well my life seems...
