One lonely night at this drive-in
(One lonely night at this drive-in)
And now I know what a fool Ive been
(And now I know what a fool Ive been)

She was to meet me
(An empty cup, a broken date)
We had a date
(A broken date, an empty cup)
A date at seven, I dreamed of heaven
Now its way past eight

She just drove by with another guy
(She just drove by with another guy)
No wonder I cant help but cry
(No wonder I, by and by)

An empty cup, a broken date
Now its way past eight
An empty cup, a broken date

To think she never cared
(An empty cup, a broken date)
Just tears me up
(A broken date, an empty cup)
Now all I have to show for love
Is this empty cup

Just like this Coke my love is gone
(Just like this Coke my love is gone)
Ive hit the bottom now Im all alone
(All alone)

Songwriters
Roy Kelton Orbison;Norman Petty
