Lonesome Pine

print

I’m lonesome pine on the mountain
All alone I find no one by my side
Oh I wish I had me a dogwood tree
That would bloom beside me for company

I’m lonesome so lonesome I’ll never know why
I must stand all alone till the day that die
I’ll never get over this sorrow of mine
This evergreen sorrow from the lonesome pine

In the summertime when the wind blows free
There’s a mournful song in the heart of me
It’s the saddest song that you’ll ever hear
For the lonesome pine will you shed a tear

In the wintertime when the snow falls down
And my branches drop till they touch the ground
You can hear me groan with the load I bear
For its mine all alone no one seems to care
