I remember the night that I told her
It ain’t you, but it’s me who’s got to go
Now as I sit alone I wonder
If a heart as true as hers I’ll ever know

Why, why, why
Won’t this yearning just leave me alone?
Why, why, why
Am I destined to grieve, cry, and moan?

Once I had a home in the city
And with wine, friends, and money I was blessed
Why’d I hop that train to California
Now I’m lonesome, broke, and hungry way out West


This bottle, I know it’s gonna kill me
Or at least make me old before my day
But sad songs they sound so fine with whiskey
And those sad songs are the only kind I play
