David Allan Coe – Play Me A Sad Song lyrics

By David Allan Coe

Play me A sad song

Tell me your woman's gone

You know how misery loves company

Sing it just one more time

Before I lose my mind

Tell me how misery loves company

Loneliness surrounds me

Emptiness you found me

I don't think I can go on

Sing me A drinking song

Tell me you done her wrong

You know how misery loves company

Ill put in my last dime

To hear it one more time

Willie, sing misery loves company
