The Town Crier (High Lonesome Song)

from by Discord & Rye

lyrics

Lean in bartender, let me tell you of fear
The night is still young
and there is youth in my beer
The bells in the village ring out so strong
Its the only way (Its the only way)
I know the week has come and gone

The trees are locked in by the snow covered leaves
Totally laid out with no comfort of sleeves
The rest are before me with no blessing or song
It's the only way (It's the only way)
I know the season has come and gone

(Bridge)
The year has gone by like a boxer's last round
Hungover, punch-drunk with no comfort found
and I thought I needed nothing
but that High Lonesome sound
That high lonesome sound

Race is over and my children are raised
with my casket wide open so family can pray
Tombstone mounted in that cold winter ground
Its the only way (It's the only way)
I know that light was coming down.
