The night was black, roads were icy
Snow was fallin', drifts were high
And I was weary, from my driving
And I stopped to rest for a while

I sat down at a truck stop
I was thinking about my past
I've had a long streak of that bad luck
But I'm praying it's gone at last

Gone, gone at last, gone at last
Gone at last, gone at last
I've had a long streak of that bad luck
But I'm prayin' it's gone at last

I ain't dumb, I've kicked around some
I don't fall too easily
But that boy looked so dejected
He just grabbed my sympathy

Sweet little soul now, what's your problem?
Tell me why you're so downcast
I've had a long streak of bad luck
But I'm praying it's gone at last

Gone, gone at last, gone at last
Gone at last, gone at last
I've had a long streak of bad luck
But I'm prayin' it's gone at last

Once in a while from out of nowhere
When you don't expect it, and you're unprepared
Somebody will come and lift you higher
And your burdens will be shared

Yes I do believe, if I hadn't met you
I might still be sinking fast
I've had a long streak of bad luck
But I'm praying it's gone at last

Gone, gone, gone at last
Gone at last, gone at last
I've had a long streak of that bad luck
But I'm prayin' it's gone at last

Gone, gone, gone
I've had a long streak of that bad luck
But I'm prayin' it's gone at last
