"Lonesome to the Bone" as written by and Johnny Cash....
On the park bench I slept on raindrops are fallin' on the newspapers coverin' me
I hear early morning motors and I know the world is waking for the dawn
But my mind's down in dark alley somewhere where last night you loved me
And in the early morning chill my arms remember still
But I'm droppin' like a stone lonesome to the bone

The sun is roughly rising on the roofs of stagger town
The time for sweatin' poison out is just now comin' round
The high time of last midnight is over with and gone
Leaving me lonesome to the bone

I walked away the wind blows and any way the wind goes will be good enough for me
The streets are loud and crowded but I walk my weary way lost and alone
Your hot breath and your laughter keep flashing through my mind to warm me
But the naked light of day soon makes it fade away
And I'm droppin' like a stone lonesome to the bone

The sun is roughly rising
