High Lonesome

Gretchen Peters/Goldline Music, admin. by WB Music Corp., ASCAP

High in a tree, on the top of the hill
By the light of the lonesome old moon
I hear the call of the lone whipporwill
Singing his mournful tune


And its high lonesome
High lonesome, heart broken and blue
And its high lonesome
Just like I'm lonesome for you

Way off in the night blows a lone freight train
With the roar and the rumble of the wheels
And my pour heart is breaking with every refrain
'Cause it sounds like the way I feel

(repeat chorus)

Do you ever get weary of roaming around
Do you think of the sweet love we knew
Do you ever get lonesome the way I am now
Little darling, I'm lonesome for you

(repeat chorus)

Little darling, I'm lonesome for you
