Lyrics
Now the road is rocky, but it won't be rocky long
Now the road is rocky, but it won't be rocky long
Another man has got my woman and gone
I've got those blues,
I'm wearing out the soles of my shoes
I've got those blues,
I'm wearing out the soles of my shoes
My gal went away and left me
She left me with the dog gone blues

You'll never miss your water til the well runs dry
You'll never miss your water til the well runs dry
You'll never miss your woman
Until she says goodbye
I wish to the Lord you'd bring my woman back home
I wish to the Lord you'd bring my woman back home
I'm not so lonesome, just don't want to be alone
