Gone at Last

ŠPaul Simon, released on Still Crazy After All These Years, 1975

.

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
