The Lonesome River Recorded by Ralph Stanley Written by Carter Stanley and Ralph Stanley
C I sit here alone on the banks of the river F C The lonesome wind blows the water rode high F C I hear a voice call from out there in the darkness G7 C 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 grieve and to cry
The woman I love she left me this morning G7 C With no one to love or kiss me goodnight
We met there one night on the banks of the river F C Sat there holdin' hands and makin' a vow F C That we never would part and be happy together G7 C But a new love she's found she's gone with him now
