Words and music by Hank Williams, Sr.
[G] Ev'rybody's lonesome for somebody else
But nobody's lonesome for [D7] me
Ev'rybody's thinkin' 'bout somebody else
But nobody thinks about [G] me
When the [C] time rolls around for me to [G] lay down and die
I bet [D7] I'll have to go and hire me [A7] someone to [D7] cry
[G] Ev'rybody's lonesome for somebody else
[D7] nobody is lonesome for [G] me.
Ev'rybody's longin' for somebody else
But nobody's lonesome for me
Ev'rybody's dreamin' about somebody else
But nobody dreams about me
All I need is a bride who want's a big-hearted groom
I wouldn't care if she come ridin' in on a broom
Ev'rybody's lonesome for somebody else
No-bod-o-dy lonesome for me.
Ev'rybody's pinin' for somebody else
But nobody's lonesome for me
Ev'rybody's crazy 'bout somebody else
But nobody's crazy 'bout me
Oh, I shined up my shoes and then I slicked down my hair
Put on my Sunday suit, but I ain't goin' nowhere
Ev'rybody's lonesome for somebody else
But nobody's lonesome for me.
Ev'rybody's yearnin' for somebody else
But nobody's lonesome for me
Ev'rybody's fallin' for somebody else
But nobody's fallin' for me
Now I ain't had a kiss since I fell out of my crib
It looks to me like I been cheated out of my rib
Ev'rybody's lonesome for somebody else
No-bod-o-dy lonesome for me.
