  • Everybody's going out and having fun
    I'm a fool for staying home and having none.
    I can't get over how she set me free.
    Oh, lonesome me.

    There must be some way that I can lose these lonesome blues
    Forget about my past and find someone new
    I've thought of everything from A to Z
    Oh, lonesome me.

    I'll bet she's not like me.
    She's out and fancy free,
    Flirting with the boys with all her charms
    But I still love her so,
    And brother don't you know
    I'd welcome her right back here in my arms Writer/s: Don Gibson
