about

Loneliness. Ditch found himself particularly lonely last December. Alone. By himself. So very, very alone. In three days, he wrote a dozen or so songs about this crippling loneliness and, in a very lonely manner, committed them to tape. Sometimes to battle loneliness you just have to shout: Goddamn It I'm So Lonely.

Track Name: Low Class Clown
I'm knockin' back a bottle that's what I do
Tippin' in some brown, drinkin' it down
And actin' like a low class clown, that's what I do

I got up early this morning maybe never went to sleep
I got into the whiskey baby I'm tellin you I got in and I got in deep
Ain't nobody here to tell me gotta change my ways
Ain't no one around for a while babe ain't been anyone here for a coupla days

I'm knockin' back a bottle that's what I do
Tippin' in some brown, drinkin' it down
And actin' like a low class clown, that's what I do

Some folks got jobs to go to in their suits and ties
That might sound good for you and yours but it sure don't for me and mine
If you ever wanna see me come and knock at my door
I'll let you in I'll give you a kiss if I can get up off the floor

I'm knockin' back a bottle that's what I do
Tippin' in the brown, drinkin' it down
And actin' like a low class clown, that's what I do
Track Name: Swing and Miss
We always came around this old playground
On a Sunday morning walking hand in hand
Underneath this tree that's where you told me
You wanted me to be your lovin man

Why did I come here?
What a silly thing to do
Now I'm swinging on a swing and missing you

When you told me you found another
I begged you to remember this playground tree
You cried one tear then you left me here
Lonely as this playground in January

Why did I come here?
What a silly thing to do
Now I'm swinging on a swing and missing you
Track Name: Ain't Drinkin' Alone
Each day turns into night and I'm sad and lonely
The soundtrack to my life stars one trombone
My friends shake their heads when they talk about me
What they're saying is awfully over-blown

They have some crazy misconceptions
They say my name in a disapproving tone
They whisper "ain't you heard he's off the deep end?
Spends every night at home drinkin alone"

Well I ain't drinkin' alone that much is clear
Don't go spreadin lies and rumors both far and near
Call a spade a spade and call a deer a deer
I ain't drinkin' alone I'm drinkin' a beer

Well I ain't drinkin' alone that much is clear
Don't spread lies and rumors as if I won't hear
Call a spade a spade and call a deer a deer
I ain't drinkin' alone I'm drinkin' a beer
Track Name: Great Big Gale
I'm in a dilly of a whale of a great big gale of loneliness
Out to sea in the weeds under lock and key of one and onliness
All I hear from the morning to the noon to the night is sigh and moanliness
I'm in a dilly of a whale of a great big gale of loneliness

On the days I wake up and get outta bed
Woe is me is all that rattles around my head
Figurin I oughta just go back to sleep instead
And those are the days I even get out of bed

I'm in a dilly of a whale of a great big gale of loneliness
Out to sea in the weeds under lock and key of one and onliness
All I hear from the morning to the noon to the night is sigh and moanliness
I'm in a dilly of a whale of a great big gale of loneliness

Well I ain't never been too good with women it's true
But I'm an expert at letting them make me sad and blue
I'm stuck here with a one wishing it was a two
But I ain't never been too good with women it's true

All I hear from the morning to the noon to the night is sigh and moanliness
I'm in a dilly of a pickle of whale of a wind filled sail of a great big gale of loneliness
Track Name: New Year's Resolution
Every year I close another lonely chapter
Turn the page though I know every word that's gonna come after
On New Year's Day when I wake up alone
I resolve this is the year I'll find someone
But like the sun settin in the west
I'm always a lonely mess
And I always break my New Year's Resolution

I always break my New Year's Resolution
Must be a law they put in the constitution
Since I always fail I found a new solution
One more year of loneliness that's my New Year's Resolution
Track Name: Pretty Good Way to Start
I want a broken heart with no chance of repair
I want to long for her touch
I want to cry cause she's not there
If she's gonna leave me lonesome
If she's gonna break my heart
First I have to find her, that's a pretty good way to start

I tell my friends who are crying
I wanna walk in their shoes
Tell em they're so so lucky
For feelin so so blue
They look at me like I'm crazy
Like I've lost my mind
But you can never feel lost love
If love you never find

So I want a broken heart with no chance of repair
I want to long for her touch
I want to cry cause she's not there
If she's gonna leave me lonesome
If she's gonna break my heart
First I have to find her, that's a pretty good way to start
Track Name: Lonely Town
I'm leavin town, I gotta get away
Been living in lonely town wish I could leave today
I won't say my goodbyes I'll just be on my way
No one here in lonely town to say goodbye to anyway

Cause I'm too lonely for this town in which I've been living
I'm too lonely to keep on keepin on with what I've been given
I'm lonelier than a captain when all his crew has drowned
I'm so so lonely living in lonely town

And with that first step down the road I'll be on my way to feelin free
Free from this lonely town and the lonely walls I built up around lonely me
I will not send a postcard I will not spend a dime
When I'm out of lonely town I'm leavin it behind

Cause I'm too lonely for this town in which I've been living
I'm too lonely to keep on keepin on with what I've been given
I'm lonelier than a redwood that falls without a sound
I'm so so lonely living in lonely town
I never should have moved here it's got such a lonely name
What was I expecting?
I have only me to blame
Track Name: Goddamn It I'm So Lonely
Goddamn it I'm so lonely
Jesus Christ I feel so blue
And I'm holdin on to holdin out for hope that I can make it through
Make it through another night
Another night without you
Goddamn it I'm so lonely
When you took my heart and you took my pride
You shoulda took my loneliness too

I stopped my clock the night you left
If that was all the time we had I didn't wanna waste the rest
You left me nothin, now nothin's all I got
Nothing but my loneliness so thanks for that baby thanks a lot

Goddamn it I'm so lonely
Jesus Christ I feel so blue
And I'm holdin on to holdin out for hope that I can make it through
Make it through another night
Another night without you
Goddamn it I'm so lonely
When you took my heart and you took my pride
You shoulda took my loneliness too

Used to have a TV and a VCR
Used to have a microwave a coffee pot and a V8 car
But those are things and I don't need much
But the one thing that I wish that you'd have took from me is the one thing you just won't touch
