I Cast a Lonesome Shadow


Intro:
Am  E  Am  F  E  AM 


Am
Every evening when the sun goes down I sit here in my room
Am                                                       E                 
   Am
And the lamplight streaming over me projects my lonely gloom
C                                  F                               E
My counterpart in agony mocks each tear that falls
Am                                                      E                  
 Am                        
And I cast a lonesome shadow on these lonely,  lonely walls

Am                                               E                   Am 
He's always by my side at night no matter where I go
Am                                         E                   Am 
He lurks out in the darkness or in the neon's glow
C                                            F                             
 E
He follows me across the steps and up and down the hall
Am                                                      E                  
 Am                        
And I cast a lonesome shadow on these lonely,  lonely walls

Am                                             E                  Am 
I sit and watch the candle and the flicker of the flame
Am                                                 E                      
Am 
My writhing shadow twists and turns as though it is in pain
C                                           F                E
I'm trying to escape the memory my mind recalls
Am                                                      E                  
 Am                        
And I cast a lonesome shadow on these lonely,  lonely walls

Am                                       E                       Am 
The image of a love I lost and all the things I'd planned
Am                                         E                  Am 
Are as empty as this bottle that I hold in my hand
C                                               F                     E
My soul is buried in the depths of love and life's pitfalls
Am                                                      E                  
 Am                        
And I cast a lonesome shadow on these lonely,  lonely walls
Am                                                E                    Am  
                     
I cast a lonesome shadow on these lonely,  lonely walls
