The Endless Note

Lonesome Road

Having now finished the above book my favourite two Chapters were those dedicated to Blind Willie McTell (watch out for forthcoming post) and the one detailing the “Bob Dylan Theme Time Radio Hour” from which I discovered that Frank Sinatra was the most played artist and that one of Dylan’s all time favourite tracks is Sinatra’s 1957 version of “Lonesome Road”

Look down – look down
That lonesome road
Before you travel on

Look up – look up
And seek your maker
Before (mr.) gabriel blows his horn

(I’m) weary (of) toting – such a (heavy) load
Trudging down – the (that) lonesome road

Look down – look down
That lonesome road
Before (before) you travel on

True love – true love
What have I done
That you should treat me so

You – caused me
To walk and talk
Like I never did before

(I’m) weary (of) toting – such a (heavy) load
Trudging down – the (that) lonesome road

Look down – look down (look down – look down)
That lonesome road
Before (before) you (decide to) travel on
