    The loneliness within me...takes a heavy toll...
    'cause it burns as slow as whiskey through an empty aching soul...
    and the night is like a dagger.....long and cold and sharp...
    as I sit here on the front steps blowin' smoke rings in the dark....
    I swear he wrote this for me....

    +1 Smoke Rings in the Dark. That's a killer song.

    This is one of my favorite old country sad songs, written and recorded by Hank Locklin in the late-40s. Lots of covers over the years but the Everly Brothers have the best IMO. From their 1963 album The Everly Brothers Sing Great Country Hits. Wrecking Crew folks mostly sitting in - Red Rhodes on pedal steel, Glenn Campbell and Billy Strange on guitar, Leon Russell on keys, and then country boy Bert Dodson on bass.

    I've waited so long for you to write me
    But just a memory's all that's left of you
    Send me the pillow that you dream on
    So darling I can dream on it too

    Ben Gibbard, Elliott Smith, Sufjan Stevens spring to mind.

    and my back is sore
    from bending over backwards
    to just lay the world at your door
