I tried so hard to be your man
I put my future in your hands
And I've gone a million miles
To reach your arms

And I did all that I could do
But all I did to ya was to worry you
And now today I hear you say
That we must part, that we must part

But when you get out on that highway
And the blues start coming down
Then you'll see just how lonesome
Life can really be, life can really be

Well, then I hope you meet somebody
And they dodge your heart around
Then you cry and wish that you
Were back with me, back with me

I know that love is never fair
And if you call me, baby I'll be there
Just like a fool I'll always be
In love with you

Baby, baby but when you get out on that highway
And the blues start coming down
Then you'll see just how lonesome
Life can really be, life can really be

Well, then I hope you'll meet and need somebody
And they'll dodge your poor heart around
Then you cry, cry, cry and wish that you
Were here with me, were here with me

I know that love is never, never, never fair
But if you call me, baby, trust me, I'll be there
Just like a big old fool
I'll always be still in love with you

Yeah baby, no matter what you do
I really love you
