She took my hand
And tried to make me understand
That she would always be there,
But I looked away
And she ran away from me today;
I'm such a lonely man.

It came as no surprise to me
That she'd leave me in misery.
It seemed like only yesterday
She made a vow that she'd never walk away.

First Verse

And if it seemed a sin
To love another man's woman, baby,
I guess I'll keep on sinning
Loving her, Lord, till my very last day.

But I looked away
And she ran away from me today;
I'm such a lonely man.
