Liner Notes: 

metalfoot:
Trying to get all my ducks in a row on this final weekend of 50/90... and my voice is phlegmy thanks to a head-cold running through the house... so blues it is! Thanks, Doug, for letting me set this lyric!

crisp1:
I heard this country and Alex made it bluesy and I just love the sound of it, including the raspy vocals. Glad you grabbed the lyric, Alex!

Lyrics: 

Nothing’s as lonely
Nothing’s as lonely
Nothing’s as lonely
As you in my rear-view mirror

I pack my old guitars
In my tiny rattletrap
I tie my battered suitcase
To the roof with a strap

I give you one last kiss
And feel your body one more time
The highway’s calling out to me
I say, “Bye, I’ll be fine”

But it’s a lie
It’s a lie

Nothing’s as lonely
Nothing’s as lonely
Nothing’s as lonely
As you in my rear-view mirror

Late nights in honky-tonks
Where my music can’t compete
With noisy conversations
And the tempting scent of meat

And even as I sing
I can see you in my mind
Standing in the driveway
As I’m leaving you behind

Then I cry
I cry

Nothing’s as lonely
Nothing’s as lonely
Nothing’s as lonely
As you in my rear-view mirror

So I dream of the day
I can put this life away
In order to stay
By your side
(2X)

(Instrumental)

Nothing’s as lonely
Nothing’s as lonely
Nothing’s as lonely
As you in my rear-view mirror
(Repeat)

The voice fits very well. Fine lyrics as alway. Great collaboration

I love the staccato stops in the guitar but it's your bluesy vocal delivery that carries this off for me. You've done a fine job with this lyric. And I, too, thought more of a country feeling upon reading it, but this bluesy take is the tops.
