Lonesome ValleyPDF
Traditional Chorus. Verses by Joe LaMay

We always loved the chorus to this tradtional song, but could never find verses we identifed with, so I wrote these verses to fit the chorus and to honor my family - Joe

You gotta walk that lonesome valley
You gotta walk it by yourself
Nobody else can walk it for you
You gotta walk it by yourself

Once I walked with my mother
All along life’s weary road
But when she took her final journey
She had to walk it on her own

Chorus

And once I walked with my father
All along life’s weary road
But when he took his final journey
He had to walk it on his own

Chorus

All the loved ones gone before me
To the end of life’s weary road
Someday I’ll take my final journey
And walk it on my own

Chorus
