Chamberlain – Lonesome Song Lyrics

Now the sun slides on the westside
down behind the hills. It wasn’t so long ago
when you put me out of doors
with nothing but a suitcase full of poems. So until I lay down for good,
I’m gonna live each day the way I should,
like it’s the best song I’ve ever heard. CHAMBERLAINLonesome Song Lyrics
Sun on the hillsides,
the river tells the trains to ride on,
like they’re racing that going sun. It’s been a lonesome song of a day. It’s been a lonesome song of a day. The main drag knocks along,
summer dames take their dresses for a walk
down on the courthouse lawn;
and I walk the long mile of the exile,
I guess I always will. You said I was sunlight at midnight…
a poet with the sea on my lips. There’s a book I been meaning to write,
about how my words are the proof that I’m alive,
but it would take me ten lifetimes. I’d just as soon dodge the moon
as I’d try and dodge the thought of you,
everyday’s a song and you’re the proof. You said my life rhymes with the lonesome lines
that drip from my fingertips. And now the sun slides on the westside
down behind the hills. You said I was sunlight at midnight…
a poet with the sea on my lips. And it’s a lonesome song of a day.
