THAT'S WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE LONESOME (Bill Anderson) Bill Anderson - 1960 Jaye P. Morgan - 1961 Patti Page - 1962 Jean Shepard - 1964 Conway Twitty - 1965 Connie Smith - 1966 Dave Dudley - 1966 Cal Smith - 1972 (SPOKEN:) (How do you measure loneliness) (Is it by the count of teardrops) (The beats of your heart) (The breath taking that makes one day) (Or the ticks of the clock) (That mark a long, long night) (It's even more, much more) The streets are dark and empty and you walk them all alone You think about your love affair and wonder what went wrong You go to bed each night and pray you'll never see the dawn Afraid of each tomorrow with its heartless cold unknown And that's what it's like to be lonesome With a heart a broken love taught to cry And that's what it's like to be lonesome I know 'cause I'm a mighty lonesome guy (Instrumental Break) You search to find a tavern where the music is playin' loud You try to lose your heartaches in the laughter of the crowd But the happy couples make you think of things that might have been And you have to fight the teardrops till you're by yourself again And that's what it's like to be lonesome With a heart a broken love taught to cry And that's what it's like to be lonesome I know 'cause I'm a mighty lonesome guy ********** FEMALE CHORUS: And that's what it's like to be lonesome Without your love it's such an empty world And that's what it's like to be lonesome I know 'cause I'm a mighty lonesome girl ********** (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2010)
