Verse 1

Melinda was mine 'til the time

that I found her

holdin' Jim

and lovin' him.

Then Sue came along,

loved me strong,

that's what I thought,

but me and Sue,

that died, too.


Don't know that I will

but until I can find me,

a girl who'll stay and

won't play games behind me.

(do main riff ‘til verse 2 starts)

I'll be what I am,

a solitary man,

a solitary man,

a solitary man.

Verse 2

I've had it to here being where love's a small world,

a part time thing,

a paper ring.

I know it's been done

havin' one girl who loves you,

right or wrong,

weak or strong.
