Lyrics ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT,
DO YOU MISS ME TONIGHT,
ARE YOU SORRY
WE DRIFTED APART?
DOES YOUR MEMORY STRAY
TO A BRIGHT SUMMER DAY,
WHEN I KISSED YOU
AND CALLED YOU SWEETHEART?
DO THE CHAIRS
IN YOUR PARLOR
SEEM EMPTY AND BARE?
DO YOU GAZE
AT YOUR DOORSTEP
AND PICTURE ME THERE?
IS YOUR HEART
FILLED WITH PAIN?
SHALL I COME BACK
AGAIN?
TELL ME, DEAR,
ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT?

Lyrics verse 1:
I'VE GOT A LOVESICK TALE
TO TELL TO YOU,
'THO' IT'S NO AFFAIR
OF MINE.
IT'S ABOUT A GAL
NAMED SUE
AND BOY NAMED LOU,
THEY WERE FIGHTING
ALL THE TIME.
LOU CAME HOME
ONE AFTERNOON,
FOUND AN EMPTY DINING ROOM,
WITHOUT A WORD
HIS TURTLEDOVE HAD FLOWN,
SO HE BEGAN TO MOAN.

Chorus:
MY SWEETIE WENT AWAY
BUT SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHERE,
SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHEN,
SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHY,
OR BID ME GOODBYE,
AND I'M AS BLUE
AS CAN BE.
I KNOW SHE
LOVES ANOTHER ONE,
BUT SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHO,
SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHICH,
SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHAT
THAT RASCAL
HAS GOT
THAT TOOK MY SWEETIE FROM ME.
I'M LIKE
A LITTLE LOST SHEEP
AND I CAN'T SLEEP
BUT I KEEP
TRYIN' TO FORGET,
THE ONE I LOVE
HAS GONE
AND LEFT ME
ALL ALONE.
I MOAN
MY SWEETIE WENT AWAY
BUT SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHERE,
SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHEN,
SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHY,
I KNOW THAT I'LL DIE,
WHY DON'T SHE
HURRY BACK HOME.

verse 2:
YOU OUGHTA SEE
THIS LOVESICK FELLOW,
NAMED LOU,
DOESN'T DO
A THING BUT SIGH.
AND WHILE
HE IS WONDERING
WHAT BECAME
OF SUE,
HE IS
A SIGHT
FOR ANY EYE.
BOUGHT SOME POISON,
BOUGHT A GUN,
SAYS GOODBYE
TO EVERYONE,
AND WHILE HE IS
DOPING OUT SOME WAY
TO DIE,
HE CAN'T FORGET
TO CRY.

Chorus:
