"Lonesome River" as written by and Carter Stanley....
I sit here alone on the banks of the river
The lonesome wind blows and the water runs high
I can hear a voice call from out there in the darkness
But I sit here alone too lonesome to cry

Oh the water rolls high on the river at midnight
I sit on the shore to grieving and to cry
The woman I love she left me this morning
With no-one to love or kiss me goodnight

We met there one night on the banks of the river
Sat there holding hands and making a vow
That we never would part and be happy together
But a new love she's found, she's gone with him now.

Oh the water rolls high on the river at midnight
I sit on the shore to grieving and to cry
The woman I love she left me this morning
With no-one to love or kiss me goodnight
