Black River flows so slowly there's no knowing its direction
Just as aimlessly I followed you a-courtin' your affection
As surely as it's flowin' down
I'll hear that high, lonesome sound
Another solitary sun west bound
Towards lonesome sundown

Lonesome sundown, lonesome sundown

Lonesome toil, Lonesome task
Bring us comfort from the past
Store bottle down the path quietly
Celebrate what we don't have
Sun shining reminding us
Of comfort from weather beaten hands
Sunset homesick silhouette
Against the rope burned west

Lonesome sundown, lonesome sundown

Feel no need to reason why the sun will rise and set
(I won't believe that it's a claustrophobic countdown to oblivion)
Just as I go burden our last scene with no regrets
(That's just too much)
Heading west out 'cross the tracks
Then deep currents draw me back
Still waters can often hide the fact
Two hearts are crossed so deep

Lonesome sundown, lonesome sundown
