Just a Don Gibson & June Carter Duet Jollying Your Day

“June you did real good in the acting department but you did even better in the singing department,” says Don Gibson to June Carter before the former and the later on the wife of Johnny Cash turned to the audience to perform Gibson’s ‘Oh, Lonesome Me.’

This performance was staged on 1961 at the Grand Ole Opry and was consider an Opry classic performance with two prominent names in the country music.

“Oh Lonesome Me” Lyrics

Everybody’s going out and having fun
I’m just a fool for staying home and having none
I can’t get over how she set me free
Oh, lonesome me

A bad mistake I’m making ’bout just hanging round
I know that I should have some fun and ain’t to town
A lovesick fool that’s blind and just can’t see
Oh, lonesome me

I’ll bet she’s not like me
She’s out and fancy free
Flirting with the boys with all her charms
But I still love her so
And brother don’t you know
I’d welcome her right back here in my arms

Well, there must be some way I can lose these lonesome blues
Forget about the past and find somebody new
I’ve thought of everything from A to Z
Oh, lonesome me

Well, I bet she’s not like me
She’s out and fancy free
Flirting with the boys with all her charms
But I still love her so
And brother don’t you know
I’d welcome her right back here my arms

Well, there must be some way I can lose these lonesome blues
Forget about the past and find somebody new
I’ve thought of everything from A to Z
Oh, lonesome me

Oh, lonesome me

Don Gibson, Oh, Lonesome Me

June Carter and Don Gibson sing Oh Lonesome Me

‘Oh, Lonesome Me’ is a product of the brilliant songwriting minds of Don Gibson and Chet Atkins during 1957. The duo also recorded a duet version of the song and released it in 1958. It also marked the first number one of Don Gibson.

During 1961, Johnny Cash also recorded a version of the said song but did not fair well on the country charts like the original version. Nevertheless, it’s still a refreshing video to watch the original singer and June Carter during her youth.
