On the Lonesome Road

Well I've rambled coast to coast seen the cities of the plains
Where they know my face but they don't know my name
I made music and whiskey in the hills of Tennessee
I forget more places than most folks ever see

On the lonesome road I'm headed down
The highways roll from town to town
Just keep movin' on but might come back someday
I've got miles to travel and a heart full of songs to play

If I had a dollar for every song I've played
I'd bet you a dollar that my bills would all be paid
If I owed you a dollar for every love I lost
Don't show me the tab I can't bear to know the cost

When I get weary, I wonder where to go
When the road gets dark and the nights get cold
I want to find a place where restless souls like me
Can hear an old fiddle tune and a harmony
