No Lonesome Tune - Lyrics

Well I ain't gonna sing no lonesome tune
Oh, Babe, I'm coming soon
I cannot believe I stayed so long away.
But a man must look around
And you're the sweetest thing I've found
Your lost high roller's rolling home today.

Well my daddy said to me
Son, it's hard as you will see
To find someone upon whom to rely.
And in the kitchen Mama sneezed
And he grinned big as you please
Said "Bless you" and a tear come to his eye.

Well I did decide that very day
That I would like to live that way
And now I know I've just been wasting time.
It's with you that I should be
And if you feel the same about me
Well I'm headed home along the straightest line.

I ain't gonna sing no lonesome tune
Oh, Baby, I'm coming soon
I cannot believe I stayed so long away.
But a man must look around
And you're the sweetest thing I've found
Your lost high roller's rolling home today.
