Are You Lonesome Tonight
Merle Haggard

Are you lonesome tonight do you miss me tonight
Are you sorry we drifted apart
Does your memory stray to a bright summer day
When I held you and called you sweetheart

Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare
Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there
Is your heart filled with pain shall I come back again
Tell me dear are you lonesome tonight

I wonder if you're lonesome tonight
You know that someone said the world's a stage and each must play a part
And fate had me playin' In Love with you as my sweetheart
Act one was where we met I loved you at first glance
You read your lines so cleverly and never missed a cue then came act two
You seemed to change you acted strange and why I've never known
Honey you lied when you said you loved me and I had no cause to doubt you
But I'd rather go on hearing your lies than to have to go on living without you
Now the stage is bare and I'm standing there with emptiness all around
And if you won't come back to me they can bring the curtain down

Is your heart filled with pain could I come back again
Tell me dear are you lonesome tonight
