Alison Krauss - How's The World Treating You Lyrics

I've had nothing but sorrow
Since you said we were through
There's no hope for tomorrow
How's the world treating you
Every sweet thing that matters
Has been broken in two
All my dreams have been shattered
How's the world treating you
Got no plans for next Sunday
Got no plans for today
Every day is blue Monday
Every day you're away
Tho' our pathways have parted
To your memory I'm true
Guess I'll stay broken hearted
How's the world treating you
Do you wonder about me
Like I'm hoping you do
Are you lonesome without me
Have you found someone new
Are you burning and yearning
Do you ever get blue
Do you think of returning
How's the world treating you

Alison Krauss How's The World Treating You Comments
  1. Glenn Backes

    wow! Louvin Brothers update even more heartbreaking when sung by Alison Krauss with very subtle harmony support by James Taylor. I've been playing this in my car, creating potential for weeping and car accidents.

  2. Tommymec

    Two of the Best, Performing to the Utmost....Magical, really!

  3. John Gusdon

    Pure perfect.

  4. Vlamir Sandrini

    The piano player sound like Floyd Cramer!


    you are correct sir, I was trying to think of the classic country pianist that was so just answered my question !!

    Always thought the great Barbara Streisand had best female voice ever and Celine Dion a close 2nd. But Allison Krause is so amazing I'm just loving her and rethinking my decision.

  32. Robin Gagan


  33. William Tolton

    My two favorite singers together. I think I am in heven.

  34. The Fox

    originally done by The Louvin Bros. This song has personal meaning to me, since my ex wife of 25 years left and came back four times (I know I allowed it, but the heart does what it wants to) last times a few years ago. She left my two girls, who they were very close to because she was a stay at home Mom and does not know her now four grandkids. The horrror has left me drowning in a River of Tears. (Clapton I believe?)


    The Fox ,sorry to hear that.

  35. joe smith

    One of my favorite songs. Well done

  36. Eric Olsen

    Nice, but not Elvis.

    Noel Kerns's better.

    Noel Kerns

    With no offense intended to Elvis.

  37. MDHenry4 Henry


  38. JohnnyBG112

    Well sung, technically. But with the feeling, heart & soul, hsp, Elvis' his version is the best.

  39. Sploek Griffy
