Kitty Wells — Six Lonely Hours lyrics

When the clock strikes one I stare at the door
By the time it reaches two I'm walking the floor
When the hands oh so gently drop down on the three
I'm alone in a world where love used to be.

There are six lonely hours before dawn
And each one is a lifetime since you are gone
I can't face up the living with the sun in the sky
But for six lonely hours I die.

--- Instrumental ---

When the chimes ring out a lonesome old choir
Sweet mem'ries rush in till I can't stand much more
At five all the heartaches I've ever known
Are there right with me that last hour alone.

There are six lonely hours before dawn
And each one is a lifetime since you are gone
I can't face up the living with the sun in the sky
But for six lonely hours I die...
