I've got no fire inside of me can't be the man I try to be
Oh Mr Lonesome hanging round
Don't wanna see nobody don't wanna be nobody
Oh Mr Lonesome got me down
He makes me leave the party when folks are laughin' hearty
Happiness is one thing he can't stand
Nobody wants or needs me I go just where he leads me
Oh Mr Lonesome got my hand
And so my whole life over each day is like the other but still if my one wish could be
If that old chain that binds me breaks when true love finds me
And Mr Lonesome sets me free oh Mr Lonesome got me down
