Long Lonely Highway Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

It's a long lonely highway when you're traveling all alone
And it's a mean old world when you got no one to call your own
And you pass through towns too small to even have a name, oh, yes

But you gotta keep on goin' on that road to nowhere
Gotta keep on goin' though there's no one to care
Just keep movin' down the line

It's a long lonely highway without her by my side
And it's a trail full of teardrops that keep on being cried
My heart's so heavy, it's a low down dirty shame, oh, yes

But you gotta keep on goin' on that road to nowhere
Gotta keep on goin' though there's no one to care
Just keep movin' down the line

I gotta rock for my pillow 'neath a weepin' willow
And the cool grass for my bed
My drinkin' water's muddy so don't you tell me, buddy
That I wouldn't be better off dead

It's a long lonely highway, gettin' longer all the time
And if she don't come and get me well, I'm gonna lose my mind
So if you read about me tell her she's the one to blame, oh, yes

You gotta keep on goin' on that road to nowhere
Gotta keep on goin' though there's no one to care
Just keep movin' down the line
Movin' down the line
