So Lonely

Oh, I don't get no letters
Nobody calls
Nobody comes 'round here no more
No pretty ladies
Nor pretty boys
Nobody comes 'round my door no more

It's just lonely
Mama you don't know
It's just lonely
Mama you don't know

Cops treat ya dirty
And the children are mean
This is the lowest town I've ever seen
People keep draggin' their bodies around
Ain't enough pride to even look around

It's just lonely, Mama
Honey you don't know

You just don't know
I've been lonely,
Mama you don't know now

I'm lonely, Mama
You don't know

I'm just lonely
Mama you don't know now

Now honey you got one little light
Now you keep it burning, burning bright
If you keep it lit every night
Someday a good man come and make it alright

But it's just so lonely, Mama
Darlin' you don't know

You just don't know
It's so lonely, Mama
You don't know now

I don't get no letters
No pretty ladies
Nor pretty boys...
