Are you lonesome tonight

Elvis Presley

     Are you lonesome tonight, do you miss me tonight?
     Are you sorry we drifted apart?
     Does your memory stray to a brighter sunny day
     When I kissed you and called you sweetheart?
     Do the chairs and your partner seem empty and bare?
D D rem G
Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there?
     Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again?
rem G7 C G7
Tell me dear are you lonesome tonight.
I wonder if you are lonesome tonight
You know someone said that the world is a stage
And you must play a part.
Fate had me playing in love twes my sweet heart.
Act one was when I met you, I loved you at first glance
You read your line so cleverly and never missed a 'q'
Then came act 2, you seemed to change and you acted strange
And why I'll never know.
Honey, you're lying when you said you loved me
And I had no cause to doubt you.
But I'd rather go on hearing your lies
Than go on living without you.
Now the stage is bare and I'm standing there
With emptiness all around
And if you won't come back to me
Then make them bring the curtain down.
Is your heart . . .

Are You Lonesome Tonight by Elvis Aaron Presley
Are You lonesome tonight?
Do You miss me tonight?
Are You sorry we drifted apart? 
Does Your memory stray
to a brighter summer day
when I kissed You and called You sweetheart? 
Do the chairs in Your parlour
seem empty and bare?
Do You gaze at Your doorstep       ( Do you gaze at Your bold head
and picture me there?                and wish you had hair?        )
Is Your heart filled with pain?
Shall I come back again?
Dm7 G7#5 C G7 (exc. last time)
Tell me, Dear, are You lonesome tonight?
< Talkin' verse: Play these chords along >
I wonder if you're lonesome tonight.. You know someone said the
world's a stage where each must play a part. Act 1 was where we met..
You read your lines so cleverly and never missed a ... etc.. etc..
< And finally, the last 3 lines ("Is Your...") again >
