ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT?



[A]Are you lonesome tonight? Do you [D]miss me [A]I say?
Are you sorry we drifted [E]apart?
Does your [A]memories cling to that [D]bright summer day
When I [E]kissed you and called you sweet[A]heart?

Like the [D]rose on the vine I am [A]clinging to you
As I did when we drifted [E]apart
I am [A]wishing you back to that [D]little shack
Where I [E]kissed you and called you sweet[A]heart

+ A - D - A - E       - A - D - E - A

Does the chair in your parlor seem empty and bare?
Do you miss me and wish I was there?
Is your heart filled with pain? Shall I come back again?
Tell me, darling, are you lonesome tonight?

[repeat verse 1 as chorus]

+ A - D - A - E       - A - D - E - A

I have counted the days, I've counted the nights
I've counted the months and the years
I have counted on you since we drifted apart
Tell me, darling, are you lonesome tonight?
