I'd Rather Be Lonely
Loudon Wainwright III

D                    G
Every night I get the blues,
A                                      D
with greens and yellows and chartreuses.
You're still living here with me.
A                    D
I'd rather be lonely.

All the time I look around
for excuses to leave town.
Everybody wants somebody, but,
I'd rather be lonely.

G                    Gm
Loneliness is happiness,
D                            D7
It takes less than two.
G                  Gm
I confess, I digress
D                                  A
from it when I'm with you.

Let us make a brand new start,
separate and stay apart.
I've had enough, having and holding.
I'd rather be lonely.

I think that I need some space
Everyday you're in my face.
How can I get rid of you?
I'd rather be lonely.

One more verse, a few more words.
Love is for the bees and birds.
Not for a human being like me.
I'd rather be lonely.
