As Lonesome as It Gets
I've been sitting here alone in the darkness With the sound of goodbye ringin' in my head I don't know how much longer I can go on like this I'm about as lonesome as it gets Just about as lonesome as it gets For a long time now, we've been drifting apart I should have been glad to see you go But now that it's over and you're on a silver jet It's about as lonesome as it gets Just about as lonesome as it gets [Chorus] If it rained straight whiskey forty days and nights It would't be enough to numb this hurt I feel Or keep this lump that's in my throat From chokin' me to death I'm about as lonesome as it gets Just about as lonesome as it gets When they dig a six foot hole in the ground and throw the dirt over me Just let these words mark my final place of rest This is as lonesome as it gets Damn sure as lonesome as it gets [Chorus]
