"High Lonesome" as written by and Gretchen Peters....
High in a tree on the top of the hill
By the light of the lonesome ol? moon
I hear the call of a lone whippoorwill
Singing his mournful tune

Way off in the night blows the long freight train
With a roar and a ramble of wheels
My poor heart is breaking with every refrain
'Cause it sounds just like the way I feel

And it's high lonesome
High lonesome heartbroken and blue
High lonesome
Lil? darling I'm lonesome for you

Do you ever get weary roamin' around?
Do you think of the sweet love we knew?
Do you ever get lonesome the way I am now?
Lil? darling I'm lonesome for you

And it's high lonesome
High lonesome heartbroken and blue
It?s a high lonesome
Lil? darling I'm lonesome for you

It's high lonesome
Lil? darling I'm lonesome for you
