APRIL 1936-DECEMBER 1988
TONIGHT, DOWN HERE IN THE VALLEY,
I'M LONESOME AND OH, HOW I FEEL.
AS I SIT HERE ALONE IN MY CABIN,
I CAN SEE YOUR MANSION ON THE HILL.

DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN WE PARTED,
THE STORY TO ME YOU REVEALED.
YOU SAID YOU COULD LIVE WITHOUT LOVE, DEAR,
IN YOUR LOVELESS MANSION ON THE HILL.

I'VE WAITED ALL THROUGH THE YEARS, LOVE,
TO GIVE YOU A HEART TRUE AND REAL.
CAUSE I KNOW YOU ARE LIVING IN SORROW,
IN YOUR LOVELESS MANSION ON THE HILL.

THE LIGHT SHINES BRIGHT FROM YOUR WINDOW,
THE TREES STAND SO SILENT AND STILL.
I KNOW YOU'RE ALONE WITH YOUR PRIDE, DEAR,
IN YOUR LOVELESS MANSION ON THE HILL.
HANK III, WEARING GRANDAD'S HAT
