Paul Robeson

"Lonely Road" (karaoke)

"Lonely Road" (sheet music)

 


 

I've been trampin' all the day,

Underneath the skies of grey,

But the home I'm headin' for

Seems far away.

 

Lonely Road, I'm weary and beat;

You hard and stony road,

You're burnin' my feet,

As I go tramp, tramp, trampin' on,

Headin' for I dunno where.

Lonely Road, you're gettin' me down

'Cause you're the only road

That leads to the town;

I've got to tramp, tramp, tramp along,

Draggin' my load of despair.

I don't know or care where you go to;

I'm lonely and sad as can be;

Got no pal to shout a "hello" to;

There's only my shadow and me.

Lonely Road, please come to an end;

You dark and lonely road,

I'm countin' each bend,

As I go tramp, tramp, trampin on,

Headin' for I dunno where.

 

Lonely Road, I'm weary and beat;

You hard and stony road,

You're burnin' my feet,

As I go tramp, tramp, trampin' on,

Headin' for I dunno where.

Lonely Road, you're gettin' me down

'Cause you're the only road

That leads to the town;

I've got to tramp, tramp, tramp along,

Draggin' my load of despair.

I don't know or care where you go to;

I'm lonely and sad as can be;

Got no pal to shout a "hello" to;

There's only my shadow and me.

Lonely Road, please come to an end;

You dark and lonely road,

I'm countin' each bend,

As I go tramp, tramp, trampin on,

Headin' for I dunno where.
