Lyrics FIFTY-SIX HOURS
AND FOUR HOURS SLEEP,
WHITE LINES AND ROAD SIGNS
AND DEADLINES TO KEEP.
FIVE MILLION ONE THOUSAND MILES
FROM MY HOME,
CAN'T TELL ME MUCH
'BOUT FEELIN' ALONE.

I HEARD A GUY
SING A SONG THE OTHER NIGHT
'BOUT TRUCK STOPS,
PAY PHONES,
AND TEXACO LIGHTS.
I KNEW EXACTLY THE FEELIN' YOU GET
WHEN IT'S YOUR LAST CHANCE TO CALL HER
AND SHE AIN'T HOME YET.

FIFTY-SIX HOURS
AND FOUR HOURS SLEEP,
WHITE LINES AND ROAD SIGNS
AND DEADLINES TO KEEP.
FIVE MILLION ONE THOUSAND MILES
FROM MY HOME,
CAN'T TELL ME MUCH
'BOUT FEELIN' ALONE.

WELL I WISH
I WAS BOARDING A STREAMLINER TRAIN
UP INTO THE MOUNTAINS
AND OVER THESE PLAINS.
HAVE A GOOD GLASS OF WHISKEY
AND GET ME SOME REST,
LET THE SUPER CHIEF CARRY ME
FURTHER ON WEST.

FIFTY-SIX HOURS
AND FOUR HOURS SLEEP,
WHITE LINES
AND ROAD SIGNS
AND DEADLINES TO KEEP.
FIVE MILLION ONE THOUSAND MILES
FROM MY HOME
CAN'T TELL ME MUCH
'BOUT FEELIN' ALONE.

Lyrics IN THESE DESPERATE HOURS
WHEN ALL MY ANGELS
HAVE GONE,
I KEEP HOLDING ON
IN THESE DESPERATE HOURS.
IN THESE DESPERATE HOURS
WAITING FOR
THE SLEEPY DAWN,
I KEEP HOLDING ON
IN THESE DESPERATE HOURS.

I DON'T WORRY
'BOUT THE SUNSHINE,
I DON'T CARE
'BOUT THE RAIN
I KNOW
IT'S COMING,
I KNOW
IT'S COMING.

IN THESE DESPERATE HOURS
I SEE
WHAT I DID WRONG,
I KEEP HOLDING ON
IN THESE DESPERATE HOURS.

Lyrics Chorus:
JUNE CARTER
SURE CAN SING:
THE WILDWOOD FLOWER,
THE ONE
ABOUT THE FIERY RING.
IN A WORLD
OF COUNTRY
COSTUME JEWELRY,
SHE'S A DIAMOND RING
JUNE CARTER
SURE CAN SING.

verse 1:
SHE DON'T NEED
A STACK OF MARSHALLS
PILED UP ON A STAGE.
WE'RE TALKIN'
'BOUT THE REAL THING,
BUDDY,
NOT THE LATEST RAGE.
STRAIGHT AND TRUE
DIRECT TO YOU,
SHE'LL PLAY
ON YOUR HEARTSTRINGS,
WITH AUTOHARP,
FLATTOP GUITAR,
AND MANDOLINS
THAT RING.

Chorus:
JUNE CARTER
SURE CAN SING:
THE WILDWOOD FLOWER,
THE ONE
ABOUT THE FIERY RING.
IN A WORLD
OF COUNTRY
COSTUME JEWELRY,
SHE'S A DIAMOND RING
JUNE CARTER
SURE CAN SING.

verse 2:
I AIN'T TALKIN'
'BOUT A MEMORY,
SHE'S STILL OUT
ON THE ROAD.
SINGING CARTER FAMILY
SONGS
EVERYWHERE SHE GOES.
GOSPEL,
FOLK
OR COUNTRY BLUES,
SHE'LL SING IT
FROM THE HEART.
AND PLAY A MOUNTAIN
SYMPHONY
ON MOTHER MAYBELL'S
HARP.

Chorus:
JUNE CARTER
SURE CAN SING:
THE WILDWOOD FLOWER,
THE ONE
ABOUT THE FIERY RING.
IN A WORLD
OF COUNTRY
COSTUME JEWELRY,
SHE'S A DIAMOND RING
JUNE CARTER
SURE CAN SING.

Lyrics TEAR DOWN
YOUR PRISON WALLS
YOU BUILT AROUND
YOUR HEART SO TALL,
TEAR DOWN YOUR WALLS
AND LET ME IN.
LET ME START LOVING YOU
THE WAY
YOU USED TO DO,
LET ME START LOVING YOU AGAIN.
DON'T YOU REMEMBER
HOW IT USED TO BE?
DON'T YOU REMEMBER YOU?
DON'T YOU REMEMBER ME?
LET ME START LOVING YOU
THE WAY
YOU USED TO DO,
LET ME START LOVING YOU AGAIN.

Lyrics I'VE WAITED
ON TRAINS
LONG OVERDUE,
TOO MANY DEALS
NEVER CAME THROUGH
I NOW KNOW
WHEN I'VE WAITED
TOO LONG.
AND WE KEEP
GOING OVER,
OVER AND OVER,
WE KEEP GOING OVER
THE SAME OLD BLUES.
I'VE GOT
NOTHING TO ADD,
I'VE SAID
MY PIECE,
YOU ALREADY KNOW
EVERYTHING ABOUT ME
YOU'LL KNOW
WHEN I'LL RUN,
WHEN I'LL STAND.
AND WE KEEP
GOING OVER,
OVER AND OVER,
WE KEEP GOING OVER
THE SAME OLD BLUES
LIFE'S TOO SHORT
TO KEEP
STANDING STILL,
AND I DON'T HAVE
ANY TIME LEFT
TO KILL.
AND WE KEEP
GOING OVER,
OVER AND OVER,
WE KEEP GOING OVER
THE SAME OLD BLUES.
