How's the World Treating You
Alison Krauss Lyrics


I've had nothing but sorrow
Since you said we were through
There's no hope for tomorrow
How's the world treating you?

Every sweet thing that matters
Has been broken in two
All my dreams have been shattered
How's the world treating you?
Got no plans for next Sunday
Got no plans for today
Every day is blue Monday
Every day you're away

Though our pathways have parted
To your memory, I'm true
Guess I'll stay broken-hearted
How's the world treating you?

Do you wonder about me
Like I'm hoping you do?
Are you lonesome without me?
Have you found someone new?

Are you burning and yearning?
Do you ever get blue?
Do you think of returning?
How's the world treating you?

Do you think of returning?
How's the world treating you?

Since you said we were through
There's no hope for tomorrow
How's the world treating you
Every sweet thing that matters
Has been broken in two
All my dreams have been shattered
How's the world treating you
Got no plans for next Sunday
Got no plans for today
Every day is blue Monday
Every day you're away
Though our pathways have parted
To your memory I'm true
Guess I'll stay broken hearted
How's the world treating you
Do you wonder about me?
Like I'm hoping you do
Are you lonesome without me?
Have you found someone new?
Are you burning and yearning?
Do you ever get blue?
Do you think of returning?
How's the world treating you?
Do you think of returning?
How's the world treating you?

This is one of the best country duets ever, hands down.
Two pros perfectly complementing each other.
Art you can listen to.
I didn't know that Elvis recorded it (1956) Apparently it was written by Chet Atkins
and the amazing Bordleaux Bryant.

Allison's voice must be how an angel's truly sounds like.

Ron Miller

This is the best duet I ever heard. They really touched my heart !!!

Absolutely beautiful,makes me tearful. James Taylor has always been above many in the music industry, and to pair him with Alison pure genius.❤️
