When I was young I used to think how it would be

Away from family friends and home

I realize it wasn’t easy or free
Dm7  G7                     Eb              F               
Out on the lonesome road
Dm7  G7   Eb                                F
 
Verse 2:
Now I am older but no wiser it seems           
I make the same mistake over and over
All I ever wanted was to follow my dreams
Out of the lonesome road
Out of the lonesome road

Well we all spend time on the lonesome road

We all look down it in the same way

Who would choose a life alone?

Out on the lonesome road

Verse 3
Somewhere somebody throw the lifeline out
Just grab a hold and let it go
Who pulls it in without a single doubt?
No one on the lonesome road

Nothing’s been the same since you went along 
Out on the lonesome road
Out on the lonesome road

Out on the lonesome road      
 
Verse 4 (return to original key of F):
And shall we meet again along the line?                                 
Well, I can’t see and I don’t know
This desperation’s just a waste of time
Lost out on the lonesome road

Well we all spend time on the lonesome road
We all look down it in the same way
Who would choose a life alone? 
Out on the lonesome road
 
Chorus 5:
Well we all spend time on the lonesome road
We all look down it in the same way
Nothing’s been the same since you went along 
Out on the lonesome road
Out on the lonesome road
Dm7             G7                 Eb                         F
Woah--oh on the lonesome road
 
Out:              Dm7          G7                                 Eb                           F
Well we all look down on the lonesome road
Well we all look down on the lonesome road
Well look down, look down, look down, look away
Well look down, look down, on the lonesome road
Well look down, on the lonesome road some day
Well look down, on the lonesome road some day
Woah--ah on the lonesome road
Woah--ah on the lonesome road
