"LONELY TRAVELING MAN"

Chorus:
Hey, lonely travelling man,
Your loneliness I understand,
It's such a lonely road,
Won't you take my hand?-
Hey, lonely travelling man,
Tell me the truth if you can,
That deep inside of you lives a lonely man.

Business hours when duty calls,
You stand so big and strong and tall.
But alone at night between hotel walls,
You feel so small.
With friends and family far away,
You find after each lonely day,
That love just can't be bought,
No matter what you pay.

[Repeat chorus]

I understand the hurt you feel,
When love seems like another business deal,
And leaves your heart so lonely still, travelling man.
But broken hearts that hunger for
A Love that's true and evermore,
Will find Heaven knocking at their door, travelling man.

Bridge:
Yes, every man has an emptiness inside
That all this World can never satisfy.
But only Heaven can fill our empty hearts,
With a Love that makes all loneliness depart.
Oh-oh, Oh-oh, travelling man!

Hey, lonely travelling man,
Your loneliness I understand,
It's such a lonely road,
Won't you take my hand?-
For broken hearts that hunger for
A Love that's true and evermore,
Will find Heaven knocking at their door, travelling man.
Will find Heaven knocking at their door, travelling man.
