I bid farewell to my home so dear
And started down life's road
I was a fortune seeking miner dear
Many things had been my goal

There's many things I've seen in life
I thought I'd like to roam
But I'd give them all and more if I
Could get off this lonesome road

It's a lonesome road to travel on
Many miles of sorrow is all I've know
But I've gone too far to turn back now
From this lonesome lonesome road

I left behind a love that's true
She cried and begged me not to go
But my foolish pride told me what to do
And put me on this lonesome road

Oh such lonely nights I've never found
No time in life before
If she takes me back I'll settle down
And travel this road no more
