Long Gone Lonesome Blues

This song is by The Proclaimers.

(THIS SONG IS A B-SIDE TO 'THROW THE R AWAY' SINGLE)

Song by Hank Williams

I went down to the river to watch the fish swim by
But I got to the river so lonesome I wanted to die
So, I jumped in the river oh, but the river was dry
She's long gone now I'm lonesome blue

I had me a woman who couldn't be true
She made me lose my money and she made me blue
Now I need a woman that I can lean on
But my leanin' post just got up and gone
She's long gone now I'm lonesome blue, Yeah

I'm gonna find me a river, one that's cold as ice
When I find me that river, I'm gonna pay the price
I'm goin' down in it three times and I'm only comin' up twice
Because she's long gone now I'm lonesome blue

She told me on Sunday she was checkin' me out
Along about Monday she was nowhere about
And here it is Tuesday, I ain't had no news
I got the gone but not forgotten blues
She's long gone now I'm lonesome blue

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

She's long gone now I'm lonesome blue
