Like a [D] bird that's [D7] lost its mate in [G] flight
I'm a-[A7] lone and oh, so blue to-[D] night
Like a piece of [D7] driftwood on the [G] sea
May you [A7] never be alone like [D] me.

I believed the [D7] lies you told to [G] me
When you [A7] whispered, "Dear, I worship [D] thee!"
Now here am [D7] I alone and [G] blue
All be-[A7] cause I loved no one but [D] you.

I gave up my [D7] friends, I left my [G] home
When you [A7] promised to be mine a-[D] lone
Now you're gone, our [D7] love could never [G] be
May you [A7] never be alone like [D] me.

In the bible, [D7] God's own words do [G] say
For [A7] ev'ry wrong some day you'll [D] pay
I pray the [D7] Lord to set me [G] free
May you [A7] never be alone like [D] me.
