Highway Of Sorrow
Written by Bill Monroe




I once had a darling wife, kind true and sweet,
Life was so bright and gay everything complete,
I fell for another who led my life astray,
And now I live in sorrow till my dying day.


Down the Highway of Sorrow I’m traveling alone,
I’ve lost all my children, I’ve lost a happy home,
I’m headed for destruction, I’m on the wrong track,
Down the Highway of Sorrow there’s no turning back


I went back to my darling and I got down on my knees,
I begged her with tear dimmed eyes to give my poor heart ease,
But she was hurt so deeply, she could not forgive,
Now I'll live in sorrow as long as I live.
