Are You Lonesome Tonight?

Are You Lonesome Tonight?
(Carter Family)

Are you lonesome tonight?  Do you miss me I say?
Are you sorry we drifted apart?
Does your memories cling to that bright summer day
When I kissed you and called you sweetheart?

    Like the rose on the vine I am clinging to you
    As I did when we drifted apart
    I am wishing you back to that little shack
    Where I kissed you and called you sweetheart

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]

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?
