“Laugh Kills Lonesome” Lyrics

All around the campfire stood
Seven dusty men
The cook was drinking applejack
The cattle were all penned
Someone must have cracked a wise one
Because the men began to grin
Their smiles shot out like sunbeams
And made the night give in
Because

Laugh kills lonesome
Every single time
That’s why Charlie Russell painted it
And why it looks so fine
Laugh kills lonesome
Every single time

Roy and Dale and Pecos Bill
They knew all about this
And so did Walt and uh, Hasui
Who gave it their own twist
Sometimes when things can’t get much worse
And life’s become a fist
Someone will crack a wise
And laughter works like this, huh-huh

Laugh kills lonesome
Every single time
That’s why Charlie Russell painted it
And why it looks so fine
Laugh kills lonesome
Every single time

[break]

Laugh kills lonesome
Every single time
That’s why Charlie Russell painted it in the first place
And why it looks so fine
Laugh kills lonesome
Every single time

Laugh kills lonesome
Laugh kills lonesome
Laugh kills lonesome
Every single time
