performed by Waylon Jennings.

Verse 1:
         D                            G              D  
	On a greyhound bus,Lord i'm traveling this morning
                        G                              D  
	I'm going to Shreveport and on down to New Orleans
                            G                          D 
	Been driving these highways,been doing things my way
                             C/G    G            D    
	It's been making me lonesome,on'ry and mean

Verse 2:
         D                                  G           D
	Now her hair was jet black,and her name was Codiene
                              G                         D
	Thought she was the cream of the Basin Street queens
                 G                        D    
	She got tired of that smokey whine dream
                       C/G    G            D    
	Began to feel lonesome,on'ry and mean

Verse 3:
         D                      G               D   
	We got together,and we cashed in our sweeps
                        G                                     D      
	Gave them to a beggar who was mumbling through the streets
                      G                            D  
	There's no escaping from his snowy white dreams
                      C/G    G            D     
	Born lookin' lonesome,on'ry and mean

Verse 4:
         D                                      G             D  
	Now i'm down in this valley,where the wheels turn so low
                    G                     D
	At dawn i pray,to the Lord of my soul
                  G               D  
	I say do Lord,do right by me
                            C/G    G            D 
	I'm tired of being lonesome,on'ry and mean
