Lonesome Valley Again


The pumpin' howl of a harmonium
The silver tongue of a painted woman
Whiskey wheeze of old bootlegers
Ax grindin' of the lumber jackers
Burned out homeplace on the farm
All the tares among the corn
Tryin' to find a long lost friend
You've reached that lonesome valley again


The timeless tick of grandfathers clock
The pantomime of the parrots talk
Surrealism in the midnight hour
Sadness in a wilted flower
A childs cry from her mamas knee
The whistlin' whine of the wind so free
Lookin' out for every sin
You've reached that lonesome valley again
