CHISELED IN STONE (Max Barnes / Vern Gosdin) Vern Gosdin - 1987 You ran cryin' to the bedroom I ran off to the bar Another piece of heaven gone to hell The words we spoke in anger Just tore my world apart And I sat there feelin' sorry for myself Then an old man sat down beside me And looked me in the eye He said, "Son, I know what you're goin' through You ought to get down on your knees And thank your lucky stars That you got someone to go home to You don't know about lonely Or how long nights can be Till you've lived through the story That's still livin' in me You don't know about sadness Till you've faced life alone You don't know about lonely Till it's chiseled in stone" So I brought these pretty flowers Hoping you would understand Sometimes a man is such a fool Those golden words of wisdom From the heart of that old man Showed me I ain't nothin' without you You don't know about lonely Or how long nights can be Till you've lived through the story That old man just told me And you don't know about sadness Till you've faced life alone You don't know about lonely Till it's chiseled in stone You don't know about lonely Till it's chiseled in stone (Contributed by Bob Cartlidge - December 2004 additional info Mel Priddle 2017)
