Last Lost Highway - Lyrics

By Kevin Welch

What have you done, sonny, what have you done
You broke our hearts, one by one
I'm as angry as they come
But I know I must accept it

Well, my children cried when they heard the news
I held them each and I cried, too
Well, you only did what you had to do
I should have known to expect it

You were on your last, lost highway
And there were no turnarounds
You were on your last, lost highway
You were lost but now you're found

Well, I've been having this dream night after night
You and me in the campfire light
Just a couple of hobos high as a kite
And I can hear the songs you're singing

Spider John and Angel Band
Oh, the Train to Birmingham
Well I guess by now I understand
The bells for you were ringing

It was your last, lost highway
And there were no turnarounds
You were on your last, lost highway
You were lost but now you're found

Sing us a song, sonny, sing us a tune
Just the way you used to do
Elvis, sing us a song, sonny, sing us the moon
All we've got left are echoes

It was your last, lost highway
You couldn't turn that rig around
You were on your last, lost highway
You were lost but now you're found

- a tribute to Pat Long, d. April 2003
