Why Should I Be Lonely
recorded by Merle Haggard                   [3/4 time]
written by Jimmie Rodgers and Estelle Lowell

C                                     Dm
Oh the moon lights so bright makes me lonely tonight
G7                               C     G7
Everything seems to make me feel b-lue dear
    C                    Dm
I'm down hearted now I'm lonesome somehow
G7                    C
Cause you are proving untrue
                       D7   G7
But why should I be so lone-ly
Why should I be so sad
       F                      C
Though another is taking from me
D7                       G7
The best pal that I ever had
She's taking the sunshine with her
               Am          F
And leaving the clouds for me
                       C    Am
But why should I be so lone-some
     C              G7           C
When there's nobody lonesome for me
The violets so blue are calling for you
G7                         C    G7
The roses so sweet make me lone-ly
     C                  Dm
They bring to my mind a sweet happy time
G7                          C
When your love was only for me
Repeat #2 & 3
