Lyrics

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.
