Story

  Look Up, Look Down That Lonesome Road (traditional)

A mournful traditional American song recorded by many, but well known for Doc & Merle Watson's recording in 1977. Becca sings lead vocal and plays fiddle, Debra sings high harmony, and plays acoustic guitar. June Drucker adds her beautiful touch on acoustic Bass. We love singing this song, it is the first cut on our debut CD.

Thank you!

Lyrics

Look Up, Look Down that Lonesome Road

(Traditional, key of Bb, Becca's fiddle is in standard tuning)

 

Look up, look down that lonesome road,

Hang down your little head and cry my love,

Hang down your little head and cry.

 

The best of friends must part some day,

And why not you and I my love,

And why not you and I?

 

The longest train I ever saw,

went down that Georgia line my love,

Went down that Georgia line.

 

The only  girl I ever loved,

is on that train and gone my love,

Is on that train and gone.

 

Becca's Fiddle Break

 

The darkest night I ever saw,

was the day I left my home, my love

Was the day I left my home.

 

I never thought when we first met,

this awful day would come, my love,

This awful day would come.

 

Chorus:

Look up, look down that lonesome road,

Hang down your little head and cry my love,

Hang down your little head and cry.
