So Doggone Lonesome - Johnny Cash

I do my best to hide this lowdown feelin'
I try to make believe there's nothing wrong
But they're always asking me about you darling
And it hurts me so to tell 'em that you're gone

If they ask me I guess I'd be denyin'
That I've been unhappy all alone
But if they heard my heart they'd hear it cryin'
Where's my darling when's she coming home

I ask myself a million times what's right for me to do
To try to lose my blues alone or hang around for you
But I make it pretty good until that moon comes shining through
And that I get so doggone lonesome
[ guitar ]
Time stands still when you're a waitin' sometimes I think my heart is stoppin' too
One lonely hour seems forever sixty minutes more to wait for you
But I guess I'll keep waitin' till you're with me cause I believe that loving you is right
But I don't care if the sun don't rise tomorrow if I can't have you with me tonight
Well I know I'll keep on loving you cause true love can't be killed
I ought to get you off of my mind but I guess I never will
I could have a dozen others but I know I'd love you still
Cause I get so doggone lonesome
