You're lost lonely sinner, come home
You wander the dessert now scared and alone
And you've lost yourself among the sands
Your clothes stained with blood now drips from your hand
Forever's a long time being alone with your fears
These filthy rags they don't wipe away tears
Take your soul to the Lonesome River and bathe

I've never done nothing for no man
This mountain I climbed tells me just who I am
Like a hurricane rips through the strongest of towns
Like I ripped and I roared through mine

And I'm down in the mud with the pigs now
My wings clipped and I shall not fly
Still I ripped mockingbirds straight from the sky
With a shotgun, smokes in my hand

So I'll take my soul to the Lonesome River and bathe

I'm lost lonely sinner, come home
And I wander the dessert now scared and alone
And I've lost myself among the sands
My clothes stained with blood now, drips in my hands.
Forever's a long time being alone with my fears
These filthy rags they don't wipe away tears

So I'll take my soul to the Lonesome River and bathe

I will not be moved.
