Lonesome Town

Album: Lonesome Town (1958)
Charted: 7
  • There's a place where lovers go to cry their troubles away
    And they call it lonesome town, where the broken hearts stay
    You can buy a dream or two to last you all through the years
    And the only price you pay is a heartful of tears

    Goin' down to lonesome town, where the broken hearts stay
    Goin' down to lonesome town to cry my troubles away
    In the town of broken hearts the streets are paved with regret
    Maybe down in lonesome town I can learn to forget

    There's a place where lovers go to cry their troubles away
    And they call it lonesome town, where the broken hearts stay
    You can buy a dream or two to last you all through the years
    And the only price you pay is a heartful of tears

    Goin' down to lonesome town, where the broken hearts stay
    Goin' down to lonesome town to cry my troubles away
    In the town of broken hearts the streets are paved with regret
    Maybe down in lonesome town I can learn to forget
