On a Greyhound bus Lord I # m travelin # this morning
I # m goin # to Shreveport and down to New Orleans
Been travlin # these highways and doin # things my way
It # s been making me lonesome on # ry and mean.
God her hair was jet black and her name was Bodine
Thought she was the queen of the Basin Street Queens
She got tired of that smoky-wine dream
She began to feel lonesome on # ry and mean.
We got together and we cashed in our sweeps
Gave onto beggar who was mumblin # through the streets
There # s no escaping from his snowy white dream
On # ry and lonesome on # ry and mean.
I # m down in this valley where the wheels turn so low
At dawn I pray to the Lord of my soul
I say do Lord do right by me you know
I # m tired of being lonesome on # ry and mean...
