Lonesome Valley

traditional / arr: TJH

 

                                    You’ve got to walk that lonesome valley,

you’ve got to walk it for yourself;

ain’t nobody else can walk it for you;

you’ve got to walk that valley for yourself.

 

My mother had to walk that lonesome valley,

well, she had to walk it for herself;

ain’t nobody else could walk it for her;

she had to walk that valley for herself.

 

My father had to walk that lonesome valley,

well, he had to walk it for himself;

ain’t nobody else could walk it for him;

he had to walk that valley for himself.

 

Oh, Jesus had to walk that lonesome valley,

well, he had to walk it for himself;

ain’t nobody else could walk it for him;

he had to walk that valley for himself.

 

SOLO

 

We’ve all got to walk that lonesome valley,

we’ve got to walk it for ourselves;

ain’t nobody else can walk it for us;

we’ve got to walk that valley for ourselves.

 

You’ve got to walk that lonesome valley,

you’ve got to walk it for yourself;

ain’t nobody else can walk it for you;

you’ve got to walk that valley for yourself.

Said, ain’t nobody else can walk it for you;

you’ve got to walk that valley for yourself.
