Gillian Welch: Lowlands lyrics



Saw a girl on the street from my home
Like a fire on the hillside she shown
And I knew right then that my best days were gone
And Id been, been in the lowlands too long

Oh Ive been in the lowlands too long
Oh, I know, I know that I should go
And Ive been in the lowlands too long

This is not how it was at the start
Theres a doubt and a blame in my heart
And its no one else, no fault but my own
And Ive been in the low lands too long

Oh Ive been in the lowlands too long
Oh, I know, I know that I should go
And Ive been in the lowlands too long

What is this weight in my mind
And what is this new sense of time
Its the open fields and the friends that are gone
And Ive been in the lowlands too long

I can sing out at all sing a song
I can do nothing all the day long
But I cant so right and I know Im wrong
And Ive been in the lowlands too long

Oh Ive been in the lowlands too long
Oh, I know, I know that I should go
And Ive been in the lowlands too long
