Lonely Highway
Dark Roadside
I've been praying for forgiveness from my sins
I know the devil's got a place for me
I am gone
I am leavin' in the mornin'

What an angry and bitter fool am I
I have been much trouble then I'm worth
I have lusted
and stolen
And been stricken down.
I am gone
I am leavin' in the mornin'

And love
Ain't been no friend of mine
I said love
I am gone
I am leavin' when the mornin' comes
I am gone
I am leavin' in the mornin'

When they me underneath the ground
I want no one to shed a tear for me
I've lived life to it's fullest
and now I'm glory bound
I am gone
I am leavin' in the mornin'
I am gone
I am leavin' when the mornin' comes
I am gone
I am hangin' in the mornin'

    General Commentwell, it could also be about a bandit or an outlaw on death row.
    and its a song of regret, from the pov of the outlaw.
