1. Ev’rybody’s goin’ out and havin’ fun,

                                 A7                        D

    I’m just a fool for stayin’ home and havin’ none,

       D                     D7                    G    A                    D

    I can’t get over how he set me free, oh, lonesome me.

 

         D                                               A

2. A bad mistake I’m makin’ by just hanging’ ‘round,

                                     A7                            D

    I know that I should have some fun and paint the town,

       D                               D7                         G     A                    D

    a love-sick fool that’s blind and just can’t see, oh, lonesome me.

     

    A                                         E

I bet she’s not like me, she’s out and fancy free,

                                                       A

flirting with the boys with all her charms.

      A                                    E

But I still love her so, and, brother, don’t you know,

        E                         E7                      A

I‘d welcome her right back here in my arms.

 

                         D                                                     A

3. Well, there must be some way I can lose these lonesome blues,

                                A7                 D

    forget about the past and find somebody new,

                D                      D7                  G  A                    D

     I’ve thought of every thing from A to C, oh, lonesome me.
