lonely town

 

Don’t go down to Lonely Town

Heartbreak’s a two-step away

An unmade bed to hang your head

Down by the dock of the bay

 

No one wants to know your name

No one is glad you came

Can you turn that frown upside-down

With a cold weary walk in the rain?

 

Don’t go down to Lonely Town

Heartbreak’s a two-step away

An unmade bed to hang your head

Down by the dock of the bay

 

When I fell down in Lonely Town

I crawled all alone on my knees

I begged for truth and lost a tooth

And was left hanging out in the breeze

 

Don’t go down to Lonely Town

Heartbreak’s a two-step away

An unmade bed to hang your head down by the dock of the bay         dgThe women down in Lonely Town                                       Well, Brother, they're really kind of mean

I pledged my love to my turtle dove

 She kicked me square in the spleen
