Hank Locklin — I Came So Close To Living Alone lyrics

I came close so close to failure I came close to losing my home
I know the kids still love me and their mommy but I came so close to living alone
I felt small enough to drown in each teardrop but big enough to admit I was wrong
Now I'm trying hard to be the man I oughta be but I came so close to living alone

I didn't know just how much they meant to me
I guess sometimes a man must be shown
When I think of what I done a chill goes through me I came so close to living alone
I felt small enough...
