Presley, Elvis - (It's A) Long Lonely Highway Lyrics




It's a long lonely highway when you're travellin' all alone
And it's a mean old world when you got no-one to call your own
And you pass through towns too small to even have a name, oh yes
But you gotta keep on goin', on that road to nowhere
Gotta keep on goin', though there's no-one to care
Just keep movin' down the line

It's a long lonely highway without her by my side
And it's a trail full of teardrops that keep on being cried
My heart's so heavy it's a low down dirty shame oh yes
You gotta keep on goin', on that road to nowhere
Gotta keep on goin', though there's no-one to care
Just keep movin' down the line

I gotta rock for my pillow 'neath a weeping willow
And the cool grass for my bed

My drinking water's muddy so don't you tell me buddy
That I wouldn't be better off dead
It's a long lonely highway gettin' longer all the time
And if she don't come and get me
Well, I'm gonna lose my mind
So if you read about me tell her she's the one to blame, oh yes
You gotta keep on goin', on that road to nowhere
Gotta keep on goin', though there's no-one to care
Just keep movin' down the line
Movin' down the line
Movin' down the line

    Sabado, dia 25 de Janeiro de 2020 : Evangelho segundo S. Marcos 16,15-18.

    Naquele tempo, Jesus apareceu aos Onze e disse-lhes: «Ide por todo o mundo e pregai o Evangelho a toda a criatura.
    Quem acreditar e for batizado será salvo; mas quem não acreditar será condenado.
    Eis os milagres que acompanharão os que acreditarem: expulsarão os demónios em meu nome; falarão novas línguas;
    se pegarem em serpentes ou beberem veneno, não sofrerão nenhum mal; e quando impuserem as mãos sobre os doentes, eles ficarão curados».

    Excellent remaster

  8. Enrico Sanchez

    I like how they remixed it- Elvis louder and the Jordannaires quieter.

    Rob McAllister

    Thank fuck! Lol

    Man, did I ever flip out in 1965, first hearing it as a bonus track on an album !

    Phil silverman -- The second of 2 takes. Take 1 is on the 45 (b-side to "I'm Yours"); both were apparently released by accident. [RCA Victor, whatcha gonna do?]

    Phil silverman This was a leftover from the June 1963 RCA Sessions, which took Elvis in a more ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll’ direction after a period of mostly pop rock and ballads. Although most of these songs would have probably done well in 1964 when the genre became popular again after the rise of the Beatles, they were not deemed to be very marketable in 1963, so most were reissued all the way until 1968 as bonus tracks on movie albums. Shame too, they could have made a good album back in ‘63.
