BESSIE SMITH lyrics - Long Road

BESSIE SMITH
"Long Road"
(Bessie Smith)

It's a long road, but I'm gonna find the end
It's a long road, but I'm gonna find the end
And when I get back, I'm gonna shake hands with a friend

On the side of the road, I sat underneath a tree
On the side of the road, I sat underneath a tree
Nobody knows the thought that came over me

Weepin' and cryin', tears fallin' on the groun'
Weepin' and cryin', tears fallin' on the groun'
When I got to the end I was so worried down

Picked up my bag, baby, and I tried it again
Picked up my bag, baby, and I tried it again
I got to make it, I've got to find the end

You can't trust nobody, you might as well be alone
You can't trust nobody, you might as well be alone
Found my long lost friend and I might as well stayed home
