     Lonesome Town
     E. Knight
     Recorded by Ricky Nelson, from the LP `Ricky Sings Again'.

     F - Am - F - G (2x)

     Verse I:

      F                     E
     There's a place where lovers go
         F         G        F    Am
     To cry their troubles away
     F         Fm      F        Am
     And they call it Lonesome Town
      F         G             F    G
     Where the broken hearts stay [Lonesome town]

     Verse II:

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


      F             Em
     Goin' down to lonesome town
      F         G             F    Am
     Where the broken hearts stay
      F     Fm      F        Am
     Goin' down to lonesome town
      F         G        F   G
     To cry my troubles away

     Verse III:

     In the town of broken dreams
     The streets are filled with regret
     Maybe down in lonesome town
     I can learn to forget


      F     Fm      F        Am
     Maybe down in lonesome town
      F     G        F     F (arpeggiate)
     I can learn to forget
     [Lonesome town]

     Ricky's answer to `Heartbreak Hotel' with a healthy dash of The
     Fleetwood's `Mr. Blue' thrown in.
