So Doggone Lonesome

Song Author Johnny Cash Performer: Johnny Cash Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]I do my best to hide this lowdown feeling
I try to make believe there's nothing [G7]wrong
But [C]they're always asking me about you [F]darling
And it [C]hurts me so to [G7]tell 'em that you're [C]gone


If they ask me I guess I'd be denying
That I've been unhappy all [G7]alone
But [C]if they heard my heart they'd hear it [F]crying
[C]Where's my darling [G7]when's she coming [C]home

I [F]ask myself a million times what's [C]right for me to do
To [F]try to lose my blues alone or [C]hang around for [G7]you   
[C]But I make it pretty good until that [F]moon comes shining through
And [C]then I get so [G7]doggone [C]lonesome


Time stands still when you're a waiting
Sometimes I think my heart is stopping [G7]too   
[C]One lonely hour seems [F]forever
[C]Sixty minutes [G7]more to wait for [C]you  


But I guess I'll keep waiting till you're with me
Cause I believe that loving you is [G7]right
But [C]I don't care if the sun don't rise [F]tomorrow
[C]If I can't have you [G7]with me [C]tonight

[F]Well I know I'll keep on loving you cause [C]true love can't be killed
I [F]ought to get you off of my mind but I [C]guess I never [G7]will   
[C]I could have a dozen others but I [F]know I'd love you still
[C]Cause I get so [G7]doggone [C]lonesome

I do my best to hide this lowdown feeling
I try to make believe there's nothing wrong
But they're always asking me about you darling
And it hurts me so to tell 'em that you're gone

If they ask me I guess I'd be denying
That I've been unhappy all alone
But if they heard my heart they'd hear it crying
Where's my darling when's she coming home

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

Time stands still when you're a waiting
Sometimes I think my heart is stopping too
One lonely hour seems forever
Sixty minutes more to wait for you

But I guess I'll keep waiting till you're with me
Cause I believe that loving you is right
But I don't care if the sun don't rise tomorrow
If I can't have you with me tonight

Well I know I'll keep on loving you cause true love can't be killed
I ought to get you off of my mind but I guess I never will
I could have a dozen others but I know I'd love you still
Cause I get so doggone lonesome
