    Lonesome

    Written by Doug Adkins

     

    Well I say lonesome, stay through the night

    You can lay by my side, we’ll keep each other warm

    I’ll hold you tight

    Pretty lady, please take my hand

    I’d love to dance with you

    let me be your man

     

    Well you didn’t come here looking for me

    And all men ain’t as bad as it seems

    The blue in my eyes, it don’t lie

    And I can wipe that hurtin’ from your eye

     

    And I say lonesome, stay through the night

    You can lay by my side, we’ll keep each other warm

    I’ll hold you tight

    Pretty lady, please take my hand

    I’d love to dance with you, let me be your man

     

    And I didn’t come here looking for you

    I’m sure you can see, I’ve been hurt too

    But dancing with you it’s easy to see

    Pretty lady, you’re the one for me

     

    And I say lonesome, stay through the night

    You can lay by my side, we’ll keep each other warm

    I’ll hold you tight

    Pretty lady, please take my hand

    I’d love to dance with you

    I want to be your man

     

    Well I say lonesome, stay through the night

    You can lay by my side, we’ll keep each other warm

    I’ll hold you tight

    Pretty lady, please take my hand

    I’d love to dance with you

    Let me be your man

     

    I want to dance with you lady

    I can be your man

    Pretty Lady

Story

"I Walk the Line" is a song written by Johnny Cash and recorded in 1956. After three attempts with moderate chart ratings, "I Walk the Line" became the first number one Billboard hit for Cash. The single remained on the record charts for over 43 weeks, and sold over 2 million copies.

After the writing of the song Cash had a discussion with fellow performer Carl Perkins who encouraged him to adopt "I Walk the Line" as the song title. Cash originally intended the song as a slow ballad, but producer Sam Phillips preferred a faster arrangement, which Cash grew to like as the uptempo recording met with success.
