Langston Hughes

Here you will find the Poem Lonesome Place of poet Langston Hughes

Lonesome Place

I got to leave this town.
It?s a lonesome place.
Got to leave this town cause
It?s a lonesome place.
A po?, po? boy can?t
Find a friendly face.

Goin? down to de river
Flowin? deep an? slow.
Goin? down to de river
Deep an? slow-
Cause there ain?t no worries
Where de waters go.

I?m weary, weary,
Weary, as I can be.
Weary, weary,
Weary as can be.
This life?s so weary,
`S? bout to overcome me.
