Why Should I Be Lonely?

This song is by Merle Haggard and appears on the album Same Train, a Different Time (1969).

Oh, the moon light's so bright
Makes me lonely tonight
Everything seems to make me feel blue here
I'm down hearted now, I'm lonesome somehow
'Cause you are proving untrue

But why should I be so lonely?
Why should I be so sad?
Though another is taking from me
The best pal that I've ever had

She's taking the sunshine with her
And leaving the clouds for me
But why should I be so lonesome
When there's nobody lonesome for me

The violets so blue are calling for you
The roses so sweet make me lonely
They bring to my mind a sweet happy time
When your love was only for me

But why should I be so lonely?
Why should I be so sad?
Though another is taking from me
The best pal that I've ever had

She's taking the sunshine with her
And leaving the clouds for me
But why should I be so lonesome
When there's nobody lonesome for me
