Lonesome Valley Lyrics

by Alabama

Well, you gotta walk that lonesome valley
You gotta walk it by yourself
Nobody else can walk it for you
You gotta walk it by yourself

Now Mother walked that lonesome valley
She had to walk it by herself
'Cause nobody else could walk it for her
She had to walk it by herself

Now Father walked that lonesome valley
He had to walk it by himself
Nobody else could walk it for him
Well, he had to walk it by himself

Now John, they say he was a Baptist
While others say he was a Jew
But the Holy Bible plainly tells you
Oh, that he was a preacher too

Yeah, you gotta walk that lonesome valley
You gotta walk it by yourself
Ain't nobody else gonna go there for you
You gotta go there by yourself

Yeah, we gotta walk that lonesome valley
We gotta walk it by ourself
'Cause nobody else can walk it for us
We gotta walk it by ourself

Yeah, we gotta walk that lonesome valley
We gotta walk it by ourself
Nobody else can walk it for us
We gotta walk it by ourself
Yeah, we gotta walk it by ourself
