"Lonesome For You" as written by Larry E. Cordle and Larry Shell....
I can't say a train whistle makes me lonesome
I can't say a whippoorwill makes me blue
It takes more than the sound of a Greyhound leavin' town
To break this poor boys heart in two
I can't say them old sad songs on the jukebox
Are causin' me to cry these bitter tears
The only time they do is when I get the blues
Or when I'm feeling lonesome for you
And I'm lonesome for you little darling
More lonesome than the high winds in the pines
I don't want somebody else taking care of
What used to be mine
There's an old houndog on the hill behind the house
He sit up sharp and howlin' at the moon
I can tell by his whinin' that his heart been broken too
He's lonesome like I'm lonesome for you
And I'm lonesome for you little darling
I can't say train the whistle makes me lonesome
I can't say whippoorwill makes me blue
The only time they do is when I get the blues
Or when I'm feeling lonesome for you
Yeah the only time they do is when I get the blues
Or when I'm feelin' lonesome for you
