HOW'S THE WORLD TREATING YOU
(Chet Atkins, Boudleaux Bryant)

I've had nothing but sorrow
Since you said we were through.
There's no hope for tomorrow.
How's the world treating you?
Ev'ry sweet thing that mattered
Has been broken in two.
All my dreams have been shattered.
How's the world treating you?

Got no plans for next Sunday.
Got no plans for today.
Ev'ry day is Blue Monday,
Ev'ry day you're away.
Though our pathways have parted,
To your mem'ry I'm true.
Guess I'll stay broken-hearted.
How's the world treating you?

Do you wonder about me
Like I'm hoping you do?
Are you lonesome without me?
Have you found someone new?
Are you burning and yearning?
Do you ever get blue?
Do you think of returning?
How's the world treating you?

Do you think of returning?
How's the world treating you?
