Lonesome Old Song

print

I set here in shame while the records are playing
The blues hang around me no need to go home
I keep on a drinking and wondering about her
That lonesome old song reminds me she’s gone

That lonesome old song keeps on a playing
And telling a story that makes me so blue
How the girl that I love has gone on and left me
That lonesome old song reminds me of you

I know I’m a fool to still care about her
She’s been unfaithful unkind and untrue
But all that she’s done right now don’t matter
That lonesome old song reminds me we’re thru

I know some day I’ll get over losing
She’s the only girl I could ever call mine
Since she’s gone away my life ain’t worth living
For a lonesome old song and a bottle of wine
