Hank Williams – May You Never Be Alone lyrics

Recorded by hank williams, sr.
Words and music by hank williams, sr.

Capo: 2nd fret key: e play: d
Like a [d] bird thats [d7] lost its mate in [g] flight
Im a-[a7] lone and oh, so blue to-[d] night
Like a piece of [d7] driftwood on the [g] sea
May you [a7] never be alone like [d] me.

I believed the [d7] lies you told to [g] me
When you [a7] whispered, dear, I worship [d] thee!
Now here am [d7] I alone and [g] blue
All be-[a7] cause I loved no one but [d] you.

I gave up my [d7] friends, I left my [g] home
When you [a7] promised to be mine a-[d] lone
Now youre gone, our [d7] love could never [g] be
May you [a7] never be alone like [d] me.

In the bible, [d7] gods own words do [g] say
For [a7] evry wrong some day youll [d] pay
I pray the [d7] lord to set me [g] free
May you [a7] never be alone like [d] me.
