Little Jimmy Dickens — 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 ought to be
But I came so close to living alone
[ steel ]
I didn't know just how much they meant to me
I guess sometimes a man must be strong
When I think of what I've done a chill goes through me
I came so close to living alone
I felt small enough to drown...
