    It's a lonely autumn morning

    On this West Virginia ridge

    These clouds just seem to chill me to the bone

    Well I wish I knew but I just can't tell

    If I'll ever find home

    The only thing I know is I'm alone

     

    Silver clouds there ain't no linin'

    To my pockets I'm alone

    Been twenty years of searchin'

    For my home

    Out of  luck I'm out of money

    The good times are all gone

    The future ain't no brighter

    Than the dawn

     

    Reach into my pocket

    Thank I'll have a smoke

    It's the only comfort now that's left around

    I thought I made some progress

    When I left my city life

    These solitary hours get me down

     

    Silver clouds there ain't no linin'

    To my pockets I'm alone

    Been twenty years of searchin'

    For my home

    Out of  luck I'm out of money

    The good times are all gone

    The future ain't brighter

    Than the dawn

     

    Well maybe if I find some work

    To occupy my time

    Oh a women who could keep me from the cold

    Well the prospects ain't no brighter

    And I'm trying to find relief

    From this darkness that keeps crawling  on my soul

     

    Silver clouds there ain't no linin'

    To my pockets I'm alone

    Been twenty years of searchin'

    For my home

    Out of  luck I'm out of money

    The good times are all gone

    The future ain't no brighter

    Than the dawn

     

    Silver clouds there ain't no linin'

    To my pockets I'm alone
