A hundred miles on the other side of lonesome
A hundred miles past anything called fair
Ain't no need to question my devotion
For the girl I love, all burdens will I bare.

Oh, sweet Mary, where'd you go?
Kissed your lips just days ago
Now it seems I'm steady wasting time.

A hundred miles of empty road
Worn out hearts and teeth of gold
Feel like I could just lay down and die
On the other side.

Lonesome Dogtown nights
There's a girl waiting for me by and by
on the other side
Lonesome Dogtown nights
There's a girl that I cannot leave behind.


A hundred miles on the other side of lonesome
A hundred miles past any kind of plan
All I know is I can drink an ocean
of whiskey if I can't see her again.

Oh, sweet Mary, where'd you go?
Kissed your lips just days ago
Now it seems I'm steady wasting time.

A hundred miles of empty road
Worn out hearts and teeth of gold
Feel like I can just lay down and die
on the other side.

Lonesome Dogtown nights
There's a girl waiting for me by and by
on the other side
Lonesome Dogtown nights
There's a girl that I cannot leave behind.

Come on down and sit a while
I just covered a hundred miles
Think I'll sit right here and drink my fill
Yesterday's gone with the wind
Tomorrow's on its way again
figure it'll bring just what it will.

Oh, sweet Mary, where'd you go?
Kissed your lips just days ago
Now it seems I'm steady wasting time.

A hundred miles of empty road
Worn out hearts and teeth of gold
Feel like I can just lay down and die
on the other side.

Lonesome Dogtown nights
There's a girl waiting for me by and by
on the other side
Lonesome Dogtown nights
There's a girl that I cannot leave behind

    General CommentCurrently my favorite song, wish it would have been on the newest album. At least there's a version with him and Rick Steff. Those are my favorite versions and a good change from the horns of Overton Park.
