Joanne

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jim Lauderdale

(I've transcribed this as it is sung, even though that breaks some of the lines in odd places.)

Alone
Downtown
It's late
Three a.m.
It's cold
It's dull
As being all lone and on my own again

Joanne
I'm still
In love with you alone
Don't make
No sense
But I just can't chase you from this heart of mine

I found who I was looking for
I lost her sure as rain
If I can find her one more time
I swear I won't lose her again

How sad
My heart
How still
Is the rain
That taps
Upon
This old downtown hotel, dirt-streaked window pane

If you
Forgive
What I
Left undone
The worst
I did
Not say, I promise you I'll never run away

I found who I was looking for
I lost her sure as rain
If I can find her one more time
I swear I won't lose her again

I found who I was looking for
I lost you sure as rain
If I can find you one more time
I swear I won't lose you again
I swear I won't lose you again
