    (Hank Williams)

    I went down to the river to watch the fish swim by
    But when I got to the river so lonesome I wanted to die, oh Lawd
    And then I jumped in the river but the doggone river was dry
    I had me a woman she couldn't be untrue.

    She made me for money and she made me blue
    A man needs a woman that he can lean on
    But my leanin' post is done and left and gone
    She's long gone and now I'm lonesome blues.

    --- Instrumental ---

    Gonna find me a river one that's cold as ice
    When I find me that river Lord I'm gonna pay the price, oh Lawd
    I'm goin' down in it three times but I'm only comin' back twice
    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
    Got them gone but not forgotten blues
    She's long gone and now I'm lonesome blues...
