South Of Lonesome

[C. Montgomery]
Glad Music Co. BMI

Thought I had everything goin' my way for a change
but changin' horses spoiled the perfect dream
I took a turn for the worse, and now I'm loosin' you
My world all full of strangers fallin' through…

And that sign ahead reads lonesome city limits
A place where happiness comes to no one
I walk on streets not ever dry from teardrops
I'm travellin' north, just a little bit south of lonesome

You haven't told me yet, but I know I'm losin' you
I got way's of finding out things for myself
If you loved me once, somethin' sure went wrong some place
There's no love in a message written on your face
