I have resently gone through some old lyrics and rewrote this song. I have had this kicking around for a while and I think it’s about there. Your opinions are always welcome.

Tired of Being Tired of Being Lonely
Key of G (kapo 3rd fret)
Time = 4/4 Tempo = 135

Intro: G-Am-C-D7sus4-D7-G

        G             Bm           Am7
I’m gettin’ tired of being tired of being lonely
    C             D7sus4     G
I’m tired of never quite being me
G                         Bm         Am7
So put your warm loving arms around me
        C             Am               D7sus4….D7
Let this night be everything a love should be.
C                       D             Em
Cause I’m tired of being tired of being lonely
C                     D7sus4     G
Oh, I’m tired of never quite being me

G
It’s a hard thing to be
Am
Broken hearts and broken dreams
C                       D7sus4   G
Where the end does not justify the means
G A longing for a love
Am
Sent down from heaven above
C                 D7sus4           Em
A weeping hearts desperate cry for love
C                       D7sus4       G
I’m gettin’ tired of being tired of being lonely

          G             Bm           Am7
I’m gettin’ tired of being tired of being lonely
    C             D7sus4     G
I’m tired of never quite being me
G                         Bm         Am7
So put your warm loving arms around me
        C             Am               D7sus4….D7
Let this night be everything a love should be.
C                       D             Em
Cause I’m tired of being tired of being lonely
C                     D7sus4       G
Oh, I’m tired of never quite being me

It’s a hard thing to please
Bitter hearts and angry screams
When a love was never meant to be
A perfect alibi
Another pack of lies
I’ve been alone enough for one lifetime.
I’m gettin’ tired of being tired of being lonely

          G             Bm           Am7
I’m gettin’ tired of being tired of being lonely
    C             D7sus4     G
I’m tired of never quite being me
G                         Bm         Am7
So put your warm loving arms around me
        C             Am               D7sus4….D7
Let this night be everything a love should be.
C                       D             Em
Cause I’m tired of being tired of being lonely
C                     D7sus4       G
Oh, I’m tired of being tired of being lonely

Thanks Crystal sorry I missed you on your song. I did change the second verse again after the MP3 I sent you. I think this is better and the final draft. As many time as I have rewritten the Lyrics it is time to let this one rest. It is now posted on my wesite. This one of mine make me think of Hank Snow and Marty Robins. By the way I now have 4 song in the hands of Strait. I’m just waiting to see if I get a cut and release.

Great job on your song!!!!!

Teddie

Marlene

Didn’t you want to co-write a while back? If I recall I never got a reply. I would be happy to if you are interested.
