I'm a rollin' stone, all alone and lost,
For a life of sin I have paid the cost,
When I pass by all the people say,
There goes another guy on the Lost Highway.
Just a deck of cards and a jug of wine,
And a woman's lies make a life like mine,
The day we met I went astray,
Started rollin' down that Lost Highway.
I was just a lad barely twenty two,
Neither good nor bad, just a kid like you,
But now I'm lost, too late to pray,
Just another guy on the Lost Highway.
Now boys don't start your ramblin' round,
Or just like me you'll be sorrow bound,
Take my advice or you'll curse the day,
You started rollin' down that Lost Highway
