lyrics

I went down to the river to watch the fish swim by
When I got to the river I was so lonesome I wanted to cry
Then I jumped in the river but the dog-gone river was dry
Now I'm long gone lonesome blue

I had me a woman who wouldn't be true
She made me for my money and she made me blue
But a man needs a woman that he can lean on
But my leanin' post has done left and gone
Now I'm long gone lonesome blue


I'm gonna find me a river one that's cold as ice
When I find me that river good lord I'm gonna pay the price
I'm going down there three times but lord I'm only coming up twice
Now I'm long gone lonesome blue

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