Well, my truck broke down this morning on the freeway
Somewhere between here and where I'd been
And I lost my favorite lady last night in a card game
She stacked the deck so I couldn't win.

Chorus:
And now I'm lost and lonesome
Down so low I've got-ta reach up to tie my shoes
Now I'm lost and lonesome
Livin' with a classic case of the blues.

There's an old piano playin' on the jukebox
And a steel guitar just beggin' me to cry
And those barroom ladies smilin' by the dozen
Just so they can tear my heart out one more time.

Chorus:
And now I'm lost and lonesome
Down so low I've got-ta reach up to tie my shoes
Now I'm lost and lonesome
Livin' with a classic case of the blues.

Well, there's a brighter side to everything I'm saying
There's a silver lining somewhere down the line
But I sure ain't seen that brighter side lately
I'll be damned if I'll believe that lining shines.

Chorus:
And now I'm lost and lonesome
Down so low I've got-ta reach up to tie my shoes
Now I'm lost and lonesome
Livin' with a classic case of the blues.

Chorus:
And now I'm lost and lonesome
Down so low I've got-ta reach up to tie my shoes
Now I'm lost and lonesome
Livin' with a classic case of the blues.

You've got me livin' with a classic case of the blues...
