Hank Snow – I'll Ride Back To Lonesome Valley lyrics

My troublin' mind tonight is drifting
To a cottage far away
And as restless cattle wander
I can hear a sweet voice say.

"You are leaving, Jack, your darling
With a lonesome broken heart
But I'll wait in Lonesome Valley
Tho' we may be far apart. "

Yes, so well do I remember
Of the night we say goodbye
There were teardrops on your cheeks, dear
As I left your loving side.

But when round up time is over
Wheter skies are dark or fair
I'll ride back to Lonesome Valley
For I know I'll find you there.

You are my queen of Lonesome Valley
By your side I know no care
Nights out on the lonesome prairie
You have been my guiding star.

Soon my faithful paint I'll saddle
And beneath the western sky
I'll ride back to Lonesome Valley
And you'll be my blushing bride...
