Lonesome Valley

This song is by Joan Baez and Mary Travers and appears on the live album Live at Newport (1996) by Joan Baez.

You got to walk that lonesome valley
You got to walk it by yourself
Ain't nobody here can walk it for you
You got to walk it by yourself

Your mother walked that lonesome valley
She had to walk it by herself
Ain't nobody here to walk it for her
She had to walk it by herself

spoken:
Get mutterin'
Alright, go ahead
Another version

You gotta go down and join the union
You got to join it by yourself
(By yourself)
Ain't nobody here can join it for you
You got to join it by yourself

You gotta go down and join the picket
You got to go down and join by yourself
Ain't nobody here can join it for you
You gotta go down and join the picket by yourself

You gotta go down to Mississippi
You gotta go down there by yourself
Ain't nobody here will go there for you
You gotta go down to Mississippi by yourself

You got to walk that lonesome valley
(Sing)
You got to walk it by yourself
Ain't nobody here can walk it for you
You got to go walk it by yourself

spoken:
One more time

You got to walk that lonesome valley
You got to walk it by yourself
Ain't nobody here can walk it for you
You got to walk it by yourself
