There are Doc Watson lyrics here (click) (probably a mirror of here (click)), but not the one you want.
Doc Watson tab here (click), also quite a few Doc lyrics here (click). -Joe Offer-

All my Doc albums are 20+ yrs old. I don't have any of the more recent ones.

According to what I found, 'Lonesome Road' was released in 1977 and 'Stonewall (Around My Heart)' is on it but I haven't found the lyrics.

Here ya go... This is from memory, and I haven't done or heard this song for twenty years or so. But I think this is all there is to it.


The days we had together now all seem so few
and today when I passed you on the street
you treated me like a stranger that you never knew
its the same way every time we meet


Chorus:
You've built a stone wall all around your heart
though my arms ache to hold you as before
You've built a stone wall all around your heart
and you won't let me love you any more


How did I hurt you darlin' why won't you say
Honey what have I done to you
For I still worship you dear in that same old way
How could you forget the love we knew

Chorus


Not sure if that's "forget" or "forsake" in the last line. Either would work wouldn't it?
