GUEST,Mary V Lyr Add: Broken Hearted Lover (Carter Family) (9) Lyr Add: ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT (Carter family) 04 Mar 03

CHORUS: Are you lonesome tonight? Do you miss me, I say?
Are you sorry we drifted apart?
Does your memories [sic] cling to that bright summer day
When I kissed you and called you sweetheart?

Like the rose on the vine, I am clinging to you
As I did when we drifted apart.
I am wishing you back to that little shack
Where I kissed you and called you sweetheart.

Does the chair in your parlor seem empty and bare?
Do you miss me and wish I was there?
Is your heart filled with pain? Shall I come back again?
Tell me, darling, are you lonesome tonight? CHORUS

I have counted the days; I've counted the nights.
I've counted the months and the years.
I have counted on you since we drifted apart.
Tell me, darling, are you lonesome tonight? CHORUS

I found these on the wonderful Carter Family Website..
there are 47 pages of Carter lyrics.
Just type it in google and it comes up.

from Mary
