Lonesome For You

 

Now I know what it means to be lonesome

And I know what it means to be blue

And I know what it means to be lonesome in dreams

When there' someone missing you

 

Cause I've cried and I've cried since we parted

There's no one knows what I've gone through

I'd give all that I own just to have you back home

Cause I'm lonesome lonesome for you

 

My best friend left me this morning

As the clock was striking four

And the smiling face of my darling

I may not see no more

 

Now I know what it means to be worried

To be all lonesome and blue

For the one that I loved so dearly

Has turned her back on me

 

Oh my  mind is full of sorrow

And my heart is filled with pain

And I feel so broken hearted

Wont you please come back again

 

Cause I've cried and I've cried since we parted

There's no one knows what I've gone through

I'd give all that I own just to have you back home

Cause I'm lonesome lonesome for you
