I once had a darling wife kind, true and sweet
Life was so bright and gay everything complete
But I fell for another who led my life astray
So I'll live in sorrow 'til my dying day

Down the highway of sorrow, I'm traveling alone
I've lost all my true friends, I've lost a happy home
I'm heading for destruction, I'm on the wrong track
Down the highway of sorrow, there's no turning back

I went back to my darling, I got down on my knees
I begged her with tear rimmed eyes to give my poor heart ease
But she was hurt so deeply she could not forgive
So I'll live in sorrow as I long as I live

Down the highway of sorrow, I'm traveling alone
I've lost all my true friends, I've lost a happy home
I'm heading for destruction, I'm on the wrong track
Down the highway of sorrow, there's no turning back
