	        Intro:   (C) - Dm- G - C - G7 

            C          Em            Am         
1. Are you lonesome tonight, do you miss me tonight? 
             C         C7      F 
    Are you sorry we drifted apart? 
              G7                G7 
    Does your memory stray to a brighter sunny day, 
            G7            G7              C      
    when I kissed you and called you sweetheart? 
             Gm/C            C7            F         
    Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare? 
            D7                        D7         G7 
    Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there? 
             C                 Em             D7            
    Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again? 
             Dm            G7         C        - G7 
    Tell me dear are you lonesome tonight. 


C         Em          Am 
I wonder if you are lonesome tonight.  
You know someone said that the world is a stage, 
               C     C7 
and you must play a part. 
Fate had me playing in love with you as my sweetheart. 
Act one was when I met you, I loved you at first glance.  
     G7                                   G7 
You read your line so cleverly and never missed a cue.  
Then came act 2, you seemed to change and you acted strange, 
     C                    C7 
and why I'll never know. 

Honey, you lied when you said you loved me,  
and I had no cause to doubt you.  
But I'd rather go on hearing your lies, 
                       G7                   C 
than go on living without you. 
C                  Em/C                 D 
Now the stage is bare and I'm standing there  
      D                       Dm 
with emptiness all around.  
And if you won't come back to me, 
                C                     G7 
then they can bring the curtain down. 
              C                Em             D            
     Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again? 
              Dm            G7         N.C         
     Tell me dear are you lovesome tonight.
