lyrics

I’M GETTING’ PRETTY GOOD AT BEING LONESOME
by Bob Wright ©

G
I got one coffee cup and that seems to be enough
D
I’m getting’ pretty good at being lonesome

got one tire on my car but I don’t travel far
G G7
I’m getting’ pretty good at being lonesome
(chorus)
C G
being lonesome just seems to work best for me
A D
I don’t have to waste my time livin’ out my dreams
G
lots more room in the house since that last mouse checked out
D G
I’m getting’ pretty good at being lonesome

I got one pair of shoes
but they don’t see much use
I’m getting’ pretty good
at being lonesome
got one door on the house
but I never go out
I’m getting’ pretty good
at being lonesome

(chorus)
being lonesome just seems
to work best for me
I don’t have to waste my time
In someone else’s dreams
Everything stays the same
When there’s no one else to blame
I’m gettin’ pretty good
at being lonesome

I’m gettin’ pretty good
At being lonesome
