Lyrics Lonesome, On'ry and Mean

On a greyhound bus
Lord I'm traveling this morning
I'm going to Shreveport and on down to New Orleans
Been driving these highways
Been doing things my way
It's been making me lonesome on'ry and mean
Now her hair was jet black and her name was Codene
So thought she was the cream of the Basin Street queens
She got tired of that smokey whine dream
Began to feel lonesome on'ry and mean
We got together and we cashed in our sweeps
Gave 'em to a beggar who was mumbling through the streets
There's no escaping from his snowy white dreams
Born lookin' lonesome on'ry and mean
Now I'm down in this valley where the wheels turn so low
At dawn I pray to the Lord of my soul
I say do Lord do right by me
You know I'm tired of being lonesome on'ry and mean
