Lyrics

Well, if your heartaches are many
And your friends are few
Well, darlin’, I, I, I, I
I’ll sympathize with you, yeah
Well if your days, your days are lonely
And your nights are blue
Well darlin’, I, I, I, I
I’ll sympathize with you, yeah
Well, if you want someone to love you
Hey, I’ll try, oh, how I’ll try
And if you need someone to hold you
Now close by his side, yeah, yeah, yeah
I’ll try, I’ll try to hide
The tears oh, you cry
Darlin’, I, I, I, I
I’ll sympathize with you, yeah
Well, if you want someone to love you
Hey, I’ll try, oh, how I’ll try
And if you need someone to hold you
Now close by his side, yeah, yeah, yeah
I’ll try, I’ll try to hide
The tears oh you cry
Well darlin’, I, I, I, I
I’ll sympathize with you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
