Lonesome Pines

print

THERE’S A PATH BACK IN THE MOUNTAINS
THAT ONE ROOM HOUSE WHERE I WAS BORN
EVEN NOW THE MEMORIES LINGER
MY MAMA’S SMILE SO SOFT AND WARM

   LONESOME PINE I CAN HEAR YOU CALLIN’
   CALLIN’ ME BACK TO MY HOME
   WHERE THE FOX AND HOUND THROUGH THE HILLS ARE ROAMIN’
   LONESOME PINE CALLIN’ ME BACK HOME

IT’S BEEN SO LONG SINCE I LEFT THAT CABIN
IN SEARCH OF WEALTH FORTUNE AND FAME
AND LATE AT NIGHT WHEN I’M ALONE AND LONELY
I STILL HEAR MY DADDY CALL MY NAME

SOMEDAY SOON I’M A GONNA TRAVEL
BACK TO THE LAND THAT I LOVE BEST
IN THE STILLNESS OF THE MOUNTAINS
I WILL FIND SWEET PEACE AND REST
