Ain't That Lonely Yet
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


You keep calling me on the telephone
You say you're all alone
Well that's real sad

And you keep leavin'
Notes stuck on my door
Guess you're hungry for some more
Girl that's too bad

'Cause I ain't that lonely yet
No I ain't that lonely yet
After what you put me through
I ain't that lonely yet

Once there was this spider in my bed
I got caught up in her web
Of love and lies

She spun her chains around my heart and soul
Never to let go
Oh but I survived

'Cause I ain't that lonely yet
No I ain't that lonely yet
After what you put me through
I ain't that lonely yet

There's nothing left that you can do
To try and bring me 'round
'Cause everything you do
Just brings me down

'Cause I ain't that lonely yet
No I ain't that lonely yet
After what you put me through
I ain't that lonely yet

'Cause I ain't that lonely yet
No I ain't that lonely yet
After what you put me through
No I ain't that lonely yet

'Cause I ain't that lonely yet
No I ain't that lonely yet
After what you put me through
No I ain't that lonely yet
'Cause I ain't that lonely yet
No I ain't that lonely yet

@Jeep Kurtz I certainly will never forget.  This one, my very favorite song from Dwight Yoakam and my very favorite country music song of the entire decade of the 1990s, certainly brings back a better era and an enjoyable year/time.  This was the late spring and the early summer of 1993..exactly twenty-two years ago at this very time.

As for me, I was thirty one years old..     :-]

By the way, this classic ended up peaking in the number two position for three consecutive weeks.  It could have inched its way one step further, couldn't it have?  That has always disappointed me.

As it is, Dwight Yoakam only had two number one singles.  That would be "Streets Of Bakersfield" (with Buck Owens) from the latter half of 1988, and "I Sang Dixie" from late 1988 and into early 1989.  Those two were also back-to-back releases back then, so Mr. Yoakam was on a roll.  This particular track here can be considered his third biggest single..     :-]

Sorry for all the rambling, but I like trivia..     :-]

"Ain't That Lonely Yet"

You keep calling me
On the telephone
You say you're all alone
Well that's real sad

And you keep leavin'
Notes stuck on my door
Guess you're hungry for some more
Girl that's too bad

'Cause I ain't that lonely yet
No I ain't that lonely yet
After what you put me through
Oh, I ain't that lonely yet

Once there was this
Spider in my bed
I got caught up in her web
Of love and lies

She spun her chains
Around my heart and soul
Never to let go
Oh, but I survived

'Cause I ain't that lonely yet
No, I ain't that lonely yet
After what you put me through
Oh, I ain't that lonely yet

There's nothing left you can do
To try and bring me 'round
'Cause everything you do
Just brings me down, oh

'Cause I ain't that lonely yet
No I ain't that lonely yet
After what you put me through
Oh, I ain't that lonely yet

'Cause I ain't that lonely yet
No I ain't that lonely yet
After what you put me through
Oh, I ain't that lonely yet

'Cause I ain't that lonely yet
No I ain't that lonely yet
After what you put me through
Oh, I ain't that lonely yet

Divorced at 49 and I've gone through a number of relationships. I may well be broken. But I'm not that lonely yet......I'm not desperate and I won't settle. I've got my dog. I'm willing to wait for the right one.

Thomas Artiaga

You're doing right... It's all I really have to say you're doing right.. you're worthy and you deserve somebody better that's all... As long as you're doing right you deserve somebody better I'm sorry I didn't f**** work out I'm in the same f**** boat brother... Or sister... We're just two peas in a pod growing in hell...but you and I are going to get the f*** out of here and have a better life I know damn well... And no I sure as s*** didn't intend for it to f**** rhyme

@Katy Damn right.

Same here. I have been through some rough relationships and now that I'm on the other side of the heartbreak, I'd rather be alone than settle.
