     G - Em - C - D (2x)

     [Verse 1]

      G                     B
     There's a place where lovers go
         C         D        G    Em
     To cry their troubles away
     C         Cm      G        Em
     And they call it Lonesome Town
      C         D             G    D
     Where the broken hearts stay [Lonesome town]

     [Verse 2]

      G                     B
     You can buy a dream or two
         C         D        G    Em
     To last you all through the years
     C         Cm      G        Em
     And the only price you pay
      C    D             G
     Is a heart full of tears


      C             Bm
     Goin' down to lonesome town
      C         D             G    Em
     Where the broken hearts stay
      C     Cm      G        Em
     Goin' down to lonesome town
      C         D        G   D
     To cry my troubles away

     [Verse 3]

      G                     B
     In the town of broken dreams
         C         D        G    Em
     The streets are filled with regret
     C         Cm      G        Em
     Maybe down in lonesome town
      C         D             G    D
     I can learn to forget


      C     Cm      G        Em
     Maybe down in lonesome town
      C     D        G     C (arpeggiate)
     I can learn to forget
     [Lonesome town]

Awesome job, but I think the B in the verse sounds better as B7.
