Hank Williams Jr. – The Same Old Story lyrics

Hey there lonely girl can I sit with you

I've just got to find someone to tell my story to

You've heard it all before now here it is once more

And please kiss away my tears when I am through

It's just the same old story once again with a sweet beginning and a bitter end

A love affair that didn't turn out right

And the world has one more broken heart tonight

Would you like to dance oh you know it's been a long time

Since I had a woman satisfy my urge

But you know it never works a false love won't take away hurt

But just pretend I'm him and I'll pretend you're her

And it'll be just the same old story...

And the world had one more broken heart tonight
