Hank Locklin — Too Close To Her (and Too Far From You) lyrics

I was just lonesome I was just blue and I was too close to her and too far from you
We shared a glass of wine and a dance or two
And I held her close to me wishing she was you
That's how things happen that's how things begin
A heart gets too lonesome and looks for a friend
I didn't mean to cheat or be untrue
But I was too close to her and too far from you

Day after day went by with no letter from you
And you didn't telephone like you said that you would do
And darling I felt so hurt when you let me down
So lonely and tired of just hangin' around
And that's how things happen...
(Too far from you)
