It's A Long Rocky Road    (1963)

It's a long rocky road that has no turnin'
When the one you love proves untrue
You just sit home alone by your telephone
Cryin' your heart out for someone who's untrue

It's a long rocky road that has no turnin'
Teardrops on my pillow tell me so
There's no use in me sayin', I haven't been prayin'
For something I treasure, and know I cannot hold

Be faithful, little darlin', that's what I used to say
But you paid no attention, you just went on your way
Oh, it's a long rocky road that has no turnin'
This yearnin', dear, I hold for you
There's no use in me sighin', no use in me cryin'
I'll travel alone for I'm lost without you

It's a long rocky road that has no turnin'
Teardrops on my pillow tell me so
There's no use in me sayin', I haven't been prayin'
For something I treasure, and know I cannot hold

Be faithful, little darlin', that's what I used to say
But you paid no attention, you just went on your way
Oh, it's a long rocky road that has no turnin'
This yearnin', dear, I hold for you
There's no use in me sighin', no use in me cryin'
I'll travel alone for I'm lost without you
