Lyrics Long Gone Lonesome Blues

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 had 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
Along 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
