Darlin'
I'm feeling pretty lonesome
I'd call you on the phone some
But I don't have a dime
Darlin' you're so far behind me
Tomorrow's gonna find me
Further down the line

Takin' me some paper
Pencil in my hand
I'm gonna write
Darlin' you know I feel the cold nights
Thinking of the old nights
Spent along with you

Darlin' the tear is in my eye now
Knowing I can try now
To make it back to you

Darlin'
Love you more than ever
Wish we were together
Darlin' of mine

Darlin'
I'm feeling pretty lonesome
I'd call you on the phone some
But I don't have a dime
Darlin' you're so far behind me
Tomorrow's gonna find me
Further down the line

Oh my darlin'
I'm feeling pretty lonesome
I'd call you on the phone some
But I don't have a dime

Darlin'
I'm feeling pretty lonesome
I'd call you on the phone some
But I don't have a dime

Darlin'
I'm feeling pretty lonesome
I'd call you on the phone some
But I don't have a dime
