Long Gone Lonesome Blues

Long Gone Lonesome Blues - Hank Williams -

I went down to the river to watch the fish swim by
But I got to the river so lonesome I wanted to die..., oh lord!
And then I jumped in the river, but the doggone river was dry

She’s long gone, and now I’m lonesome blues

I had me a woman who couldn’t be true
She made me for my money and she made me blue
A man needs a woman that he can lean on,
but my leanin’ post is done left and gone

She’s long gone, and now I’m lonesome blues

I’m gonna find me a river, one thats cold as ice
And when I find me that river, lord I’m gonna pay the price..., oh lord!
I’m goin’ down in it three times, but lord I’m only comin’ up twice

She’s long gone, and now I’m lonesome blues

She told me on Sunday she was checkin’ me out
Long about Monday she was nowhere about
And here it is Tuesday, ain’t had no news
I got them gone but not forgotten blues

She’s long gone, and now I’m lonesome blues
