Lonesome valley she calls my name
leads me back home once again
saint or sinner you can't hardly tell
who's got time for heaven or hell

Lonesome valley she spreads her wings
she circles 'round me and so she brings
constant sorrow and kisses sweet
these contradictions, they hurt my feet

Lonesome valley
she sets me free
she brings my baby back to me
this fiddle music with it brings
lovers hanging from a string

Lonesome valley and played out mines
play tricks on you all the time
ghostly voices down below
singing sweetly because they know

oh the dead don't leave here
they just hang around
there's a party raging underground
saint or sinner you can't hardly tell
who's got time for heaven or hell

    My OpinionFucking beautiful.
    I won't bother with an interpretation as no one else round here listens to Flannery.
