Elvis Presley - "Long Lonely Highway" lyrics

(words & music by pomus - shuman)

Its a long lonely highway when youre travellin all alone

And its a mean old world when you got no-one to call your own
And you pass through towns too small to even have a name, oh yes

But you gotta keep on goin, on that road to nowhere
Just keep movin down the line

Gotta keep on goin, though theres no-one to care

Its a long lonely highway without her by my side
And its a trail full of teardrops that keep on being cried

My hearts so heavy its a low down dirty shame oh yes
You gotta keep on goin, on that road to nowhere

Gotta keep on goin, though theres no-one to care
Just keep movin down the line
I gotta rock for my pillow neath a weeping willow

And the cool grass for my bed

My drinking waters muddy so dont you tell me buddy
That I wouldnt be better off dead

Its a long lonely highway gettin longer all the time

And if she dont come and get me
Well, Im gonna lose my mind

You gotta keep on goin, on that road to nowhere
So if you read about me tell her shes the one to blame, oh yes

Gotta keep on goin, though theres no-one to care

Just keep movin down the line

Movin down the line

Movin down the line
