Johnny Cash – Mr. Lonesome lyrics

I've got no fire inside of me can't be the man I try to be

Oh Mr Lonesome hanging round

Don't wanna see nobody don't wanna be nobody

Oh Mr Lonesome got me down

He makes me leave the party when folks are laughin' hearty

Happiness is one thing he can't stand

Nobody wants or needs me I go just where he leads me

Oh Mr Lonesome got my hand

And so my whole life over each day is like the other but still if my one wish could be

If that old chain that binds me breaks when true love finds me

And Mr Lonesome sets me free oh Mr Lonesome got me down
