Swagman Lament

Swagman Lament – Words and Music Terry and Jenny Bennetts

The road is long and I grow weary
‘Used to be so strong, when I had you near me
What used to be right, turned out so wrong
Now I just get along

I had planned all our tomorrows
Without you here is, a bitter pill to swallow
Every day is rain, when you’re on your own
But you still get along

Every day I feel so much older
This swag weighs heavy on my shoulder
The man I used to be, has been long gone
It’s hard to still get along

The road is long and I grow weary
‘Used to be so strong, when I had you near me
What used to be right, turned out so wrong
Now I just get along

The road is long and I grow weary
‘Used to be so strong, when I had you near me
What used to be right, turned out so wrong
Now I just get along

What used to be right, turned out so wrong
Now I just get along
