Well, here I stand on this high ground
Looking out over this great big town
Searching for love that didn't treat me right
It's a lonesome old town tonight.

I'm passin' through I'm not here to stay
A friend he told me that she came this way
He said that he saw her by the neon lights
It's a lonesome old town tonight.

--- Instrumental ---

I see people walkin' and drivin' their cars
They're too far away for me to see who they are
I'm gonna go down so they will be in sight
It's a lonesome old town tonight.

Well, here I stand on this high ground
Looking for my baby but she can't be found
The stars are out and the moon is bright
It's a lonesome old town tonight.

--- Instrumental ---

I'm passin' through I'm not here to stay
A friend he told me that she came this way
He said that he saw her by the neon lights
It's a lonesome old town tonight.

Well, here I stand on this high ground
Looking for my baby but she can't be found
The stars are out and the moon is bright
It's a lonesome old town tonight.

It's a lonesome old town tonight...
