  • When the lonely set in, I fought back the tears
    I don't love you anymore is so hard to hear
    It felt like a mile from our door to my truck
    Somehow I found the strength to fire it up

    How lucky am I, that you said goodbye
    At seven o'clock on a Friday night

    I won't be lonely long
    By the time that first beer is gone
    I'll be floatin' on a neon cloud, with my friends around
    We'll be raising up our glasses and singing out loud

    To those done me wrong, drinkin' songs
    Hey ladies, tonight it's on
    No, I won't be lonely long

    Well, I usually ain't much on dancin', but tonight I'm cuttin' up a rug
    I get to say no ma'am when the ladies ask if I'm with anyone, no ma'am
    When I'm tippin' the band and buyin' everybody shots
    Spendin' every dollar I got

    I won't be lonely long
    By the time that first beer is gone
    I'll be floatin' on a neon cloud, with my friends around
    We'll be raising up our glasses and singing out loud

    To those done me wrong, drinkin' songs
    Hey ladies, tonight it's on
    No, I won't be lonely long

    There ain't an empty space in this parkin' lot
    Look at all the friends I got

    I won't be lonely long
    By the time that first beer is gone
    I'll be floatin' on a neon cloud with my friends around
    We'll be raising up our glasses and singing out loud

    To those done me wrong, drinkin' songs
    Hey ladies, tonight it's on
    I won't be lonely long
    No, I won't be lonely long Writer/s: ARLIS ALBRITTON, GEORGE DUCAS, JOSH THOMPSON
