Kathy Mattea – Lonesome Standard Time lyrics

(Mike Dowlingjan Dowling)
We were buddies once upon a time
And then you took off on your social climb
But fortune only brought you misery
And now you're cryin' out for sympathy
Well, it's lonely at the top
Yea, it's lonely at the top
Well, if this workin' girl were you
She'd just enjoy the view
'Cause it's lonely at the bottom too
Lonely at the bottom too
You're livin' high on easy street
And we're just tryin' to make ends meet
If you get tired of the grind
We'll I'll take your place and honey you take mine
Well, it's lonely at the top
Yea, it's lonely at the top
Well, if this workin' girl were you
She'd just enjoy the view
'Cause it's lonely at the bottom too
Lonely at the bottom too
Like a kitten in the neighbor's tree
Climbin' up to see what you could see
Now you're cryin', 'cause you need some help
Well, everybody's got to help themselves
Well, it's lonely at the top
Yea, it's lonely at the top
Well, if this workin' girl were you
She'd just enjoy the view
'Cause it's lonely at the bottom too
Lonely at the bottom too
Oh honey I feel so sorry for you
All the way up there all by yourself
Well, if this workin' girl were you
She'd just enjoy the view
'Cause it's lonely at the bottom too
Lonely at the bottom too
