Lonesome River

Stanley Brothers

 

E

I sit here alone on the banks of the river

A E

The lonesome wind blows, the water rolls high

A E

I hear a voice call out there in the darkness

B E

I sit here alone, too lonesome to cry

 

<CHORUS>

E

Oh the water rolls high on the river at midnight

E

I sit on the shore to weep and to cry

E

The woman I love, she left me this morning

B E

With no one to love or kiss me goodnight

 

E

We met there one night on the banks of the river

A E

Stood holding hands, making our vows

A E

Swore we'd never part, wed be happy forever

B E

But a new love she's found, she's gone from me now
