Cruel, Cruel World

Willie Nelson

Cruel, cruel world, must I go on
Cruel, cruel world, I'm moving on
I've been living too fast, I've been living too wrong
Cruel, cruel world, I'm gone

This big old world, sure got me running round
Heard a voice, it told me settle down
With the moonlight as my guide
And this feeling deep inside
I know now that I'm homeward bound

Cruel, cruel world, must I go on
Cruel, cruel world, I'm moving on
I've been living too fast, I've been living too wrong
Cruel, cruel world, I'm gone

Desert road, desert plain
I have seen, so much pain
Now I see into the eyes of a girl
No more, no more, cruel world

Cruel, cruel world, must I go on
Cruel, cruel world, I'm moving on
I've been living too fast, I've been living too wrong
Cruel, cruel world, I'm gone

On a dusty trail I saw a vapour lie
Was it mirage, don't know but it seemed right
I felt mission I felt trust, I knew then that I must
Go to her, away from this cruel world

Cruel, cruel world, must I go on
Cruel, cruel world, I'm moving on
I've been living too fast, I've been living too wrong
Cruel, cruel world, I'm gone

Cruel, cruel world, must I go on
Cruel, cruel world, I'm moving on
I've been living too fast, I've been living too wrong
Cruel, cruel world, I'm gone

Cruel, cruel world, I'm gone
