You're uptown tonight where all the bright lights glow
Where all the honky tonks with wine and music flow
And I've been walking with these blues since sundown
Looking for you on the lonely side of town.
I can see the lights of town from where I stand
Now I know you're having fun and holding hand
I knew tonight when you never came around
That you had left me on the lonely side of town.
--- Instrumental ---
Thought the life they live up there has lured your heart
To where they dance and slip around till after dark
Now the wild life and the pretty girls you found
And you left me on the lonely side of town.
I wish I could be uptown with you tonight
For I'm afraid that you found someone new you like
Now I don't want to give away my wedding gown
And be left on the lonely side of town...
