Lonesome Road Blues

This song is by Muddy Waters and appears on the album Muddy Waters Sings "Big Bill" (1960) and on the compilation album The Chess Box (1989).

Have you ever been walking
Walking down that old lonesome road?
Have you ever been walking
Walking down that old lonesome road?
No place to go
Whee well brown no place to room and board

Things look so lonesome, down that road ahead
Things look so dark, down that road ahead
Been thinkin' of the way you livin'
Whee well boy and what your mother said

Things look so lonesome
When you ain't got a shelter over your head
Things look so lonesome
When you ain't got a shelter over your head
When you could have been at home
Whee well boy sleepin' in a feather bed

So lonely lonesome
When you gotta travel it all alone
So lonely lonesome
When you gotta travel it all alone
When all you have here boy
She's there alone
