from by Matthew McNeal



My heart is a ghost town, It's lonesome and cold
It's been a few years since I packed up and gone
This highway don't give no love of its own
So I spend my time alonely alone

It's way too damn hard to love a music man
But I can't really blame the girls, they've been dealt bad hands
I'm a handful, I'm a drifter, I'm a sinner, I'm a mess
That's why I'm all by my lonesome with a pain in my chest

Alonely alone

Lock myself in my house just so I can breathe
Escape from the world by the skin of my teeth
Broken down, moping around, life ain't easy and it sure ain't free
But Momma raised me well, time to get back on the trail, I'm gonna leave
'Cause I've got a dream

Alonely alone

Now I'm out on the road, just my boys and me
Using money from shows on gasoline
We may be broken down but we ain't moping around,
Life is easy 'cause these gigs ain't free
I've figured it out, alonely alone ain't for me

Alonely no more
