Long Gone Lonesome Blues Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I went down to the river to watch the fish swim by
But I got to the river so lonesome I wanted to die Oh Lord
And then I jumped in the river, but the river was dry

He's long gone, and now I'm lonesome blue

I had me a man who couldn't be true
He made me for my money and she made me blue
A woman needs a man that he can lean on
But my leanin' post is done left and gone

He's long gone, and now I'm lonesome blue

I'm gonna find me a river, one that's cold as ice
And when I find me that river, Lord I'm gonna pay the price, Oh Lord
I'm goin' down in it three times, but Lord I'm only comin up twice

He's long gone, and now I'm lonesome blue

He told me on Sunday he was checkin' me out
Long about Monday he was nowhere about
And here it is Tuesday, ain't had no news
I got them gone but not forgotten blues

He's long gone, and now I'm lonesome blue
