Why Should I Be Lonely? Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

WHY SHOULD I BE LONELY
(Jimmie Rodgers - Estelle Lowell)
'30 Peer International, BMI

Oh the moon light's so bright makes me lonely tonight
Everything seems to make me feel blue here
I'm down hearted now I'm lonesome somehow
Cause you are proving untrue
Why should I be so lonely why should I be sad
Though another is taking from me the best pal I've ever had
She's taking the sunshine with her leaving the clouds for me
But why should I be so lonesome when there's nobody lonesome for me
Oh the violets so blue are calling for roses so sweet make me lonely
They bring to my mind a sweet happy time when your love was only for me
Why should I be so lonely...
