(Richard Manuel)

Lonesome Susie
Never got the breaks
She's always losing
So she sits and cries and shakes

It's so hard just to watch her
And if I touch her,
Oh poor Susie
I'm wondrin' what to do

She just sits there, hoping for a friend
I don't fit here, but I may have a friend to lend
Maybe I mistook her
But I can't overlook her
Must be someone
Who can pull her through.

Anyone who felt that bad
Could tell me what to say
Even if she'd just get mad
She might be better off that way

And where is all the understanding
I know your problem
Can't be that demanding
Why is it she looks that way
Ev'ry time ev'ry time she starts to cry
Oh lonesome Susie
I can't watch you crying no longer

Baby if you can use me
'n-till you fill just a little bit Stronger, baby
I guess just watching you
Has made me lonesome too
Why don't we get together
What else can we do?
