Capo 2  

              C
I ain't gonna sing no lonesome tune

Aw, babe I'm a comin' soon
     G
I cannot b'leive I stayed so long away
      C
But a man must look around

And you're the sweetest thing I've found
         G                               C
Aw, 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 In the kitchen momma sneezed Daddy grinned big as you please Said "bless you" and a tear came to his eye (guitar for one verse) 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 'bout me I'm headed home along the straightest line I ain't gonna sing no lonesome tune Aw, babe I'm a comin' soon I cannot b'leive I stayed so long away But a man must look around And you're the sweetest thing I've found Aw, your lost high roller's rolling home today
