Only the Lonely
recorded by Roy Orbison
written by  Joe Melson and Roy Orbison

G                                   Am
Only the lonely know the way I feel tonight
D7                        C             G
Only the lonely know this feeling ain't right
There goes my baby there goes my heart
                      A7      D7
They've gone forever  so far apart
             G            C     D7            G
But only the lonely  know why I cry  only the lonely
Only the lonely know the heartaches I've been through
D7                   C                 G
Only the lonely know I cry and cry for you
Maybe tomorrow on new romance
No more sorrow but that's the chance
D7                  C                    D7
You've got to take  if your lonely heart breaks
         G        D7       G
Only the lonely   only the lonely

Roy Orbison had a long and very successful career with many hit records. Some of his songs are somewhat difficult to do for a picker that's low on talent like me, however this one we can do. It has simple chords, it just take a little practice for the timing. Print Only the Lonely lyrics and chords, have fun.
