A I can't recall one time in my life E A I felt as lonely, as I do tonight D I feel that I could lay down A And get up no more It?s the damnedest feelin' E A(Stop) I never felt it before. A D A Tonight I feel, like an Old Violin E A Soon to be put away, and never played again D A Don't ask me why I feel like this, I can't say E A I only wish this feelin?, would just go away. D C# B E A I guess its cause the truth is the hardest thing I ever faced D A E Cause you can't change the truth, in the slightest way Cause I?ve tried. A E A So I asked myself, where do you go from here E A Then like a fool I turned around, and looked in the mirror D A And there I was seein?, an Old Violin E A Soon to be put away, and never played again. D So one more time just to be sure A I asked myself, where in the would do you go from here E And there wasn't a nickel's worth of difference A When I looked in the mirror. D A Cause there I was seein', an Old Violin E A Soon to be put away, and never played again. A And just like that it hit me That Old Violin and I were just alike E We'd give our all to music A E A And soon we'll give our lives.
