Lyrics

The night was black, the roads were icy 
Snow was fallin', drifts were high 
And I was weary, from my driving 
And I stopped to rest for a while 
I sat down at a truck stop 
I was thinking about my past 
I've had a long streak of bad luck 
But I'm praying it's gone at last 

Gone, gone at last, gone at last 
Gone at last, gone at last 
I had a long streak of that bad luck 
But I'm prayin' it's gone at last 
00, oo, oo, oo, oo 

I ain't dumb 
I kicked around some 
I don't fall too easily 
But that boy looked so dejected 
He just grabbed my sympathy 
Sweet little soul now, what's your problem? 
Tell me why you're so downcast 
I've had a long streak of bad luck 
But I'm praying it's gone at last 
 
Gone, gone at last, gone at last 
Gone at last, gone at last 
I had a long streak of that bad luck 
But I'm prayin' it's gone at last 
00, oo, oo, oo, oo 

Once in a while from out of nowhere 
When you don't expect it, and you're unprepared 
Somebody will come and lift you higher 
And your burdens will be shared 
Yes I do believe, if I hadn't met you 
I might still be sinking fast 
I've had a long streak of bad luck 
But I'm praying it's gone at last 

Gone, gone, gone at last 
Gone at last, gone at last 
I had a long streak of that bad luck 
But I'm prayin' it's gone at last 
Gone, gone, gone gone gone gone 
Gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone 
I had a long streak of that bad luck 
But I'm prayin' it's gone at last
