Girl, I'm so lonesome tonight

And Lord knows the thing that worries me the most

Is who yer don' it with

I've got new books to read
6- |/ |
But they ain't what I need
3- |6-
And this picture of you
|2-7 |2-7b5/b6 |
Just won't do, no, no, baby
1 |5/7 |
And the postcards you send would never (never) mend
b7d6 |6d7 5d7/7 7d7/#1
The pain in my heart when we're apart
|2-7 1/3 2-7/4 |1/5 |

When I'm on my job It's not too hard
3- |6-
But when I go home
