Long Gone Lonesome Blues Song Lyrics

I went down to the river to watch the fish swim by

But I got to the river so lonesome I wanted to die…oh Lord!

And then I jumped in the river, but the river was dry

*****

He’s long gone, and now I’m lonesome blue

I had me a man who couldn’t be true

He made me for my money and she made me blue

A woman needs a man that he can lean on

But my leanin’ post is done left and gone

******

He’s long gone, and now I’m lonesome blue

I’m gonna find me a river, one that’s cold as ice

And when I find me that river, Lord I’m gonna pay the price, oh Lord!

I’m goin’ down in it three times, but Lord I’m only comin’ up twice

******

He’s long gone, and now I’m lonesome blue

He told me on Sunday he was checkin’ me out

Long about Monday he was nowhere about

And here it is Tuesday, ain’t had no news

I got them gone but not forgotten blues

He’s long gone, and now I’m lonesome blue

Long Gone Lonesome Blues Song Chords




I went down to the river to watch the fish swim by;

But I got to the river so lonesome I wanted to die…, oh lord!

And then I jumped in the river, but the doggone river was dry.

shes long gone, and now Im lonesome blue.

I had me a woman who couldnt be true.
She made me for my money and she made me blue.

A man needs a woman that he can lean on,

But my leanin post is done left and gone.

Shes long gone, and now Im lonesome blue.

Im gonna find me a river, one thats cold as ice.

And when I find me that river, lord Im gonna pay the price, oh lord!

Im goin down in it three times, but lord Im only comin up twice.

Shes long gone, and now Im lonesome blue.

She told me on sunday she was checkin me out;
Long about monday she was nowhere about.

And here it is tuesday, aint had no news.

I got them gone but not forgotten blues.

Shes long gone, and now Im lonesome blue.
