To Have The Hurting End

Lyrics: Dawson?
Music: Dawson?

Played by the New Riders of the Purple Sage in 1969. Not sure if it's an original or a cover - but I can find no record of anyone else performing it.

The sun was going down
Behind the hills, behind the town
And a chilly wind began to stir the trees
Down the dusty road two feet
Shuffled lowly to the beat
Of a lonesome tune that wouldn't go away

Chorus
Oh-oh someone please
I'm lonely, I could use a friend
Oh-oh someone please
Don't let me down, to have the hurting end

You can't see very well
You might fear the tears that fell
And your eyes would say his face was still in pain
Was the little boy his all
As the night began to fall
He sat down beside the road to cry again

[chorus]

Well my father he was free
To be a sailor on the sea
And he seems to like it far away from home
And my ma wants me to play
She's got things to do today
And I hurt so bad I thought I had to roam

You know I can't do and be those different things
For everyone I see
And I'm tired and I'm hungry, I want to rest my feet

The sun was going down
Behind the hills, behind the town
And a chilly wind began to stir the trees
Down the dusty road two feet
Shuffled lowly to the beat
Of a lonesome tune that wouldn't go away

[chorus]
Don't let me down, to have the hurting end
Don't let me down, to have the hurting end
