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 doggone river was dry. She`s long gone, and now I`m lonesome blue. I had me a woman who couldn`t 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. She`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. She`s long gone, and now I`m lonesome blue.

She told me on Sunday she was checkin` me out; Long about Monday she was nowhere about. And here it is Tuesday, ain`t had no news. I got them gone but not forgotten blues. She`s long gone, and now I`m lonesome blue.
