The Lonesome River
Recorded by Ralph Stanley
Written by Carter Stanley and Ralph Stanley

I sit here alone on the banks of the river
The lonesome wind blows the water rode high
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
Sat there holdin' hands and makin' a vow
That we never would part and be happy together
G7 C
But a new love she's found she's gone with him now

Repeat #2
