I’m coming home, needing attention
Breaking down, I need some rest
I’m like a man from the third dimension
This way of life put me to the test

I used to be a drummer man
Kept it in the groove
Then I had a change of heart
Started singing blues

That’s what I choose
Leaving me high lonesome blue

Time moves on, I’m moving with it
There’s no choice, out of my hands
This is my way and I won’t quit it
Fragile, like a rope of sand

There’s a place out on the mountain
Where I go to find relief
Set my feet back on the ground
Set my spirit free

I put on my walking shoes
Leavin' me high lonesome blue, alright

There’s nothing left to prove
High lonesome blue
Leavin' me high lonesome blue, oh babe
