"Shed a Tear (For the Lonesome)" as written by Daniel Gordon Stuart and Chuck Prophet....
Rudy heard stories from a woman she met in Nogales
about dreams that came true like the movies she loved as a child
she worked night and day slaved for her pay sewing dresses
to buy her ticket to get her away down the mile

Chorus
I never knew what a woman could do when she's desperate
funny how we all wound up at the same motel
so I'll buy you a beer and we'll shed a tear for the lonesome
who wander this world searching tor someone to love

Rudy found trouble in a truckstop outside of Phoenix
a wizened old man with offers she knew to refuse
so he promised her things he saw in her eyes she needed
but with a child inside her now she had something to lose

Chorus
I never knew what a woman could do when she's desperate
funny how we all wound up at the same motel
so I'll buy you a beer and we'll shed a tear for the lonesome
who wander this world searching tor someone to love
