  1. High and Lonesome

From the recording "8 Songs 9 Players"

Lyrics

Are you High and Lonesome
Are you High and Lonesome as me
I'm standing alone on a mountain While I'm drowning out at sea
Are you High and Lonesome as me  
 
She came down from the City of Baltimore
She was the prettiest gal that I had ever seen
She was running away on down to the Shore
She sure ran all over me  
Now I'm High and Lonesome...
Falling down from top sails In the backwoods of Tennessee
Are you High and Lonesome as me  
 
Well one day I though I'd finally found her
Thought she was the sweetest gal with whom I'd ever been
I gave my heart but she gave me the soul of her shoe*
I was a damn fool to think that she loved me  
Now I'm High and Lonesome...
Stranded up on the Front Range In the middle of the prairie 
Are you High and Lonesome as me  
 
Now I know that my whole life is ramblin'
But this here singin' is the best thing that I do
I know I owe to myself to figure out something soon
Get my poor soul moving on from you...  
I am High and Lonesome...
