     To cry my troubles away

     Verse III:

     In the town of broken dreams
     The streets are filled with regret
     Maybe down in lonesome town
     I can learn to forget


      C     Cm      G        Em
     Maybe down in lonesome town
      C     D        G     C (arpeggiate)
     I can learn to forget
     [Lonesome town]

     Ricky's answer to `Heartbreak Hotel' with a healthy dash of The
     Fleetwood's `Mr. Blue' thrown in.
