​I Can't Go On Living This Way

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the album Thoughts of a Lonely Man (1968).

Well, my life seems such a mess
And I don't know what to say
Said I can't go on a living this way

I'd like to go down to the river
And drown me if I could
But I'd go down remembering
So it wouldn't do no good

I'd like to leave these thoughts behind
But they haunt me every day
And I can't go on a living this way

Well, I'm always a moanin' I'm always a groanin'
I got these weary blues
I'm always a cryin', I'm always a sighin'
It's always over you

Well, I feel too bad to leave this town
But I'm too sick to stay
Well, I can't go on a living this way

Well, my life seems such a mess
And I don't know what to say
Said I can't go on a living this way

I'd like to go down to the river
And drown me if I could
But I'd go down remembering
So it wouldn't do no good

I'd like to leave these thoughts behind
But they haunt me every day
And I can't go on a living this way
