"Oh Lonesome Me" as written by and Don Gibson....
Everybody's going out and having fun
I'm just a fool for staying home and having none
I can't get over how she set me free
Oh, lonesome me

A bad mistake I'm making by just hanging around
I know that I should have some fun and paint the town
A love-sick fool, it's blinding, just can't see
Oh, lonesome me

Well, I'll bet she's not like me, she's out and fancy free
Flirtin' with the boys with all her charms
Oh, but I still love her so and brother don't you know
Well, I'd welcome her right back here in my arms

There must be some way I can lose these lonesome blues
Forget about the past and find somebody new
I've thought of everything from A to Z
Oh, lonesome me

Well, I'll bet she's not like me, she's out and fancy free
Flirtin' with the boys with all her charms
Oh, but I still love her so and brother, don't you know
Well, I'd welcome her right back here in my arms

There must be some way I can lose these lonesome blues
Forget about the past and find somebody new
I've thought of everything from A to Z
Oh, lonesome me, oh, lonesome me, oh, lonesome me

    General CommentLoving the new song, I love how he got lucinda Williams. I really think only M. wards voice could make this song so great. He is really starting to remind me of Lenard Cohen
