Now don't the world look lonesome
When the evenin' sun goes down?
Now don't the world look lonesome
When the evenin' sun goes down?
Now it makes a man know one thing
That they's on they last go round

Now an the sun rise in the east
An it goes down in the west
Now an the sun rise in the east
An it goes down in the west
An it leaves me here thinkin'
About the one I love best

Now some of the people don't like me
Don't even want me around
Now some a the people don't like me
Don't even want me around
Ev'rytime I pay 'em a visit
They wanna drive me out they town

(guitar)

'Boy, play that thing, play that thing'

Now, it's gonna be one a these mornin's
I'm gonna leave this lonesome place
Now, it's gonna be one a these mornin's
I'm gon' leave this lonesome place
Because I'm here, baby
I ain't got no place to stay.
