There is a road that meets the road
And how it green grows there
To beat the path to my house

And he was gut-shot runnin' gin
And how he held 'em

Oh what a lonely thing! in a lonely drain!
July, July, July! never seemed so strange
This is the story of the road that goes to my house
And all the troughs that run the length and breadth of my house

Though the specifics might be vague
When in fact it was a nappy blueish grey
And the water rolls down the drain
Oh what a lonely thing
