6- |2 |
Girl, I'm so lonesome tonight
4
I was just lyin' here wonderin' where you are
|1
And what you're doin'
|4/1 /4
And Lord knows the thing that worries me the most
|1
Is who yer don' it with
That's why, if you don't mind,
|5 2d13 5d7/7
I'd like to sing these words to ya, ya see

1 |/ |
I've got new books to read
6- |/ |
But they ain't what I need
3- |6-
And this picture of you
|2-7 |2-7b5/b6 |
Just won't do, no, no, baby
1 |5/7 |
And the postcards you send would never (never) mend
b7d6 |6d7 5d7/7 7d7/#1
The pain in my heart when we're apart
|2-7 1/3 2-7/4 |1/5 |
Girl I can make it thru the day
6- |2 |5 |1 |4 |1 |5 2d7/6 5d7 |
But oh, please help me thru the lonely nites

1 |/ |6- |/ |
When I'm on my job It's not too hard
3- |6-
But when I go home
|2-7 |2-7b5/b6 |
And I'm all alone (and I'm by myself babe you heard me)
1 |5/7 |
You know you're my crutch I need you're sweet touch
b7d6 |6d7 5d7/7 7d7/#1 |
Then it gets the nite time again Lord when will it end
2-7 1/3 2-7/4 |1/5 |6- |2 |
I'll make it thru the day say, but oh
5 |1 |4 |1 |5 2d7/6 5d7 |
You don't know nothin' about the lonely nites

1 |/ |6- |/ |
Well now nite go away please hurry up day
3- |6- |2-7 |2-7b5/b6
Cause my nite lite burns and I toss and turn
|1 |5/7 |
Tell me what would I see if I turned on TV
b7 |6d7 7d7 6d7/#1 |
I don't know what to do, Lord knows, I need me some you
2-7 1/3 2-7/4 |1/5 |6- |2 |
I can make it thru the day
5 |1 |4 |1 ||
Please help me thru the lonely nite
