Instrumental Intro: 
G - Cdim - Dm7 - G7 - C - Edim - Dm7  G


C           Edim           G7
Everybody's goin' out and havin' fun;

     Dm7            Fdim               C
I'm just a fool for stayin' home and havin' none.

   C              C7              F    -   F/E  -  F  -  F/F#
I can't get over how she set me free,

  G   -  Cdim  -  Dm7  -  G7      C
Oh,                      lonesome me.


 C                     Edim             G7
There must be some way I can lose these lonesome blues,

 Dm7              Fdim          C
Forget about the past and find somebody new;

      C               C7             F    -   F/E  -  F  -  F/F#
I've thought of everything from A to Z,

  G   -  Cdim  -  Dm7  -  G7      C
Oh,                     lonesome me.


Bridge:

      G                            D
I'll bet she's not like me, she's out and fancy free,

     D7                                G
Flirtin' with the boys with all her charms.

    G                          D
But I still love her so, and brother, don't you know

     D                 D7               G    -   D7  -  G7  -  G6
I'd welcome her right back here in my arms.


       C               Edim             G7
There must be some way I can lose these lonesome blues,

   Dm7           Fdim           C
Forget about the past and find somebody new;

      C               C7             F    -   F/E  -  F  -  F/F#
I've thought of everything from A to Z,

 G   -  Cdim  -  Dm7  -  G7      C     -   C/B   -  Am7  -   Am7/G
Oh,                     lonesome me,

 G   -  Cdim  -  Dm7  -  G7      C     -   E7   -   A7
Oh,                    lonesome me,

 G   -  Cdim  -  Dm7  -  G7      C     -   Fdim   -   C
Oh,                     lonesome me.
