Lyrics:
6/8
1/3 5/4 #4 |1/5 |

6-   |2                       |
Girl, I'm so lonesome tonight
4
I was just lyin' here wonderin' where you are
   |1
And what you're doin'
                             |4/1     /4
And Lord knows the thing that worries me the most
                       |1
Is who yer don' it with
That's why, if you don't mind,
                      |5     2d13 5d7/7
I'd like to sing these words to ya, ya see

1                     |/    |
 I've got new books to read
6-                      |/   |
 But they ain't what I need
3-                  |6-
 And this picture of you
              |2-7  |2-7b5/b6  |
 Just won't do, no, no, baby
1                          |5/7                       |
 And the postcards you send would never (never) mend
b7d6                 |6d7   5d7/7     7d7/#1
 The pain in my heart when we're apart
    |2-7    1/3   2-7/4        |1/5  |
 Girl I can make it thru the day
6-      |2     |5                      |1     |4 |1 |5 2d7/6 5d7 |
 But oh, please help me thru the lonely nites

1               |/ |6-  |/                |
When I'm on my job      It's not too hard
3-             |6-
But when I go home
             |2-7        |2-7b5/b6                     |
And I'm all alone (and I'm by myself babe you heard me)
1                        |5/7                       |
You know you're my crutch I need you're sweet touch
b7d6                            |6d7  5d7/7  7d7/#1     |
Then it gets the nite time again Lord when will it end
2-7  1/3   2-7/4         |1/5  |6-      |2     |
I'll make it thru the day   say, but oh
5                      |1     |4 |1 |5 2d7/6 5d7 |
You don't know nothin' about the lonely nites

1                 |/ |6-               |/   |
Well now nite go away please hurry up day
3-                   |6-        |2-7         |2-7b5/b6
Cause my nite lite burns and I toss and turn
       |1               |5/7               |
Tell me what would I see if I turned on TV
b7                      |6d7  7d7      6d7/#1            |
I don't know what to do, Lord knows, I need me some you
2-7    1/3    2-7/4     |1/5  |6- |2 |
I can make it thru the day
5                                |1   |4   |1 ||
Please help me thru the lonely nite
