LTC – Lonesome, On’ry & Mean Lyrics

Release Date: 2009 ~ Track 4 of 12

On a greyhound bus
I’m leaving this morning
I’m going to Shreveport
Down in New Orleans
Been ridin that highway
Been doin things my way
It’s been makin me lonesome, on’ry and mean

Her hair was jet black
Her name was Codeine
Thought she was the queen
Of that basin street scene
She got tired
Of that smokey white scene
It was makin her lonesome, on’ry and mean

We got together
And passed in our sweeps
Gave ‘em to a beggar
Who was mumblin in the streets
There’s no escapin’
That smokey white dream
It was makin him lonesome, on’ry and mean

Down in the valley
Where the wheels turn so slow
To the Lord I prayed
Have mercy on my soul
I said dear Lord
Do right by me
I don’t want to feel lonesome, on’ry and mean
