Lacy J DaltonLong Gone Lonesome Blues

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

He's long gone and now I'm lonesome blue

I had me a man who couldn't be true
He made me for my money and he made me blue
Woman needs a man she can lean on
But my leaning post is done left and gone

He's long gone and now I'm lonesome blue

I'm gonna find me a river, one that's cold as ice
And when I find me that river, Lord, I'm gonna pay the price, oh Lord
I'm going down in it three times but Lord, I'm only coming up twice

He's long gone and now I'm lonesome blue

He told me on Sunday he was checking me out
Long about Monday he was nowhere about
And here it is Tuesday, ain't had no news
I got them gone but not forgotten blues

He's long gone and now I'm lonesome blue
