I do my best to hide this lowdown feelin’.
.                                                     B7
I try to make believe there’s nothin’ wrong.
.                   E                                        A
But they’re always askin’ me about you, darlin’,
.           E                   B7                        E
And it hurts me so to tell ’em that you’re gone.

.    E
If they ask me, I guess I’d be denyin’
.                                                B7
That I’ve been unhappy all alone.
.         E                                                  A
But if they heard my heart, they’d hear it cryin’,
.  E                             B7                              E
“Where’s my darlin’? When’s she comin’ home?”

.  A                                                E
I ask myself a million times what’s right for me to do,
.      A                                       E                       B7
To try to lose my blues alone or hang around for you.
.            E                                         A
Well, I make it pretty good until that moon comes shining through,
.        E                  B7        E
And then I get so doggone lonesome.

Time stands still when you’re a waitin’;
.                                                          B7
Sometimes I think my heart is stoppin’ too.
E                                      A
One lonely hour seems for – ever;
E                   B7                   E
Sixty minutes more to wait for you.

.          E
But I      guess I’ll keep waitin’ till you’re with me,
.                                                  B7
‘Cause I believe that lovin’ you is right.
.         E                                          A
But I don’t care if the sun don’t rise tomorrow
.   E                      B7                  E
If I can’t have you with me tonight.

.            A                                                  E
Well, I know I’ll keep on lovin’ you ’cause true love can’t be killed.
.   A                                                  E                       B7
I ought to get you off my mind, but I guess I never will.
.            E                                    A
I could have a dozen others, but I know I’d love you still.
.            E          B7          E
‘Cause I get so doggone lonesome.
