ROCKY ROAD BLUES
(Bill Monroe)
BILL MONROE (Columbia, 1945)
Ronnie Self (Columbia, 1957)
Gene Vincent & The Blue Caps (Capitol, 1958)

[Chorus]
Lord, the road is rocky, but it won't be rocky long
Lord, the road is rocky, but it won't be rocky long
Another man has got my woman and gone

I got those blues and I'm wearing the soles right out of my shoes
I got those blues and I'm wearing the soles right out of my shoes
My gal went away and left me, she left me with the doggone blues

[Chorus]

You never miss your water until the well runs dry
You never miss your water until the well runs dry
You never miss your woman until she says goodbye

[Chorus]

I wish to the Lord, he'd bring my woman back home
I wish to the Lord, he'd bring my woman back home
I'm not so lonesome, I just don't wanna be alone

[Chorus]
