Solitary Thinkin'

Album: Call Me Crazy (2008)
  • Well I only came into this bar
    To hear a sad song
    But I'll probably be here all night long
    The way I'm feeling now

    I couldn't get you on the phone
    So, I let it ring
    On and on in a lonesome serenade

    Oh, what am I gonna do about my problems now
    Maybe I should try to find a way to kinda, sorta, maybe, work it out

    Oh, with some solitary thinkin'
    And lonesome drinkin'
    Oh, it sure does make a body feel at home
    And a double barrel whiskey
    And oh baby, tell me do you miss me
    Some solitary thinkin' and lonesome drinkin' for me tonight

    There's two things that'll kill a girl
    They'll strike her down right where she stands
    One is his voice and one is the rock glass sitting in my hand

    Oh, lights are gettin' dimmer now
    That means they gonna shut me down
    And it's just like crystal
    It ain't always really clear

    Tell me baby now
    How am I gonna get myself to sleep now that you're gone
    Maybe I should try to find a way to kinda think about carrying on
    On my own
