Lonely grief is houndin' me
Like the lonely shadow hounding me
It's always there, just out of sight
Like a frightening breeze on a lightning night
Lonely wind cries out my name
Sad as haunted music in the rain
Ball of grief and ball of woe
But I hear it call and I've got to go
Where can I be headed for?
The blues crawl in my door
To lick my heart once more
Love lives in a lonely land
Where there's no helping hand to understand
Why does it bring this hate to me?
Why it don't matter, why?
I only know misery has to be a part of me
Never hope to count on love
To be a partner of that Heaven up above
Never hope to understand, love is a barren land
A lonely land, a lonely land
