A New Life Track Listing
  • 1 A New Life
  • 2 Southern Woman
  • 3 Blue Ridge Mountain Sky

  • 9 Another Cruel Love (live)
  • It's a lonesome road
    And a hard way to live
    But it's the only life that I know
    I met some people, I traveled around
    But home's always the best place to go

    It's a lonesome feeling in my mind
    A feeling that I can't leave behind
    Carolina's where I'm at, and
    I'll always hang my hat
    Under those Blue Ridge Mountain skies

    I got me a woman back home
    She gave me a baby, too
    And she stands by my loving side and
    Does anything I ask her to

    It's a lonesome feeling in my mind
    A feeling I can't seem to leave behind
    Carolina's where I'm at, and
    I'll always hang my hat
    Under those Blue Ridge Mountain skies

    There's an old man, sittin' in a rockin' chair
    He's got the best beagle dog in the county I've been told
    But his shotgun done got too rusty
    That 'ole beagle dog he done grown a little too old
    As he stares up into heaven, I'm sure I know the reason why
    He's thinking about that promised land in them Blue Ridge Mountain skies

    It's a lonesome feeling in my mind
    A feeling I can't seem to leave behind
    Carolina's where I'm at, and
    I'll always hang my hat
    Under those Blue Ridge Mountain skies
