From the recording Demos

If this song was submitted to a publisher or a producer today it would never get recorded; it breaks too many rules. Not the right structure; no real chorus; no hook. Fortunately this song was recorded by The Everly Brothers before the rules had been settled on. And judging by the way audiences respond, I guess somebody forgot to tell them the rules because they seem to really like this one. So do we.


I want you to tell me why you walked out on me
I'm so lonesome every day
I want you to know that since you walked out on me
Nothin' seems to be the same old way

Think about the love that burns within my heart for you
The good times we had before you went away, oh me
Walk right back to me this minute
Bring your love to me, don't send it
I'm so lonesome every day
