Don't This Road Look Rough and Rocky lyrics

Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs

Darling, I have come to tell you
Though it almost breaks my heart
That before the morning, darling
We'll be many mils apart

Don't this road look rough and rocky
Don't that sea look wide and deep
Don't my baby look the sweeter
When she's in my arms asleep

Don't you hear the nightbirds calling
Far across the deep blue sea ?
While of others you are thinking
Won't you sometimes thinking of me ?

* Refrain

One more kiss before I leave you
One more kiss before we part
You have cause me lost of trouble
Darling, you have broke my heart

* Refrain
