“Today’s Lonely Fool” is a song co-written by Kenny Beard and Stan Paul Davis and recorded by American country music artist Tracy Lawrence. It was released in February 1992 as the second single from his debut album, Sticks and Stones. The song peaked at number 3 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and number 2 on Canada’s RPM country chart.

The song is a moderate mid-tempo song where the narrator is begging forgiveness of a woman he did wrong because he didn’t trust her fidelity. He tells her that yesterday he was a jealous man but today he is just a lonely fool. The second verse is half spoken, half sung. The narrator says that if she takes him back, he will always trust her and be proud when other men notice her.

The music video was directed by Marc Ball and premiered in March 1992.

Tracy Lawrence – Today’s Lonely Fool Lyrics

What would you say if I told you I was sorry
And that I’ve come to realize
Life means nothing without you
Would you take my hand
Would you forgive this man
For ever doubting your love is true
And could you find it in your heart
To let me try and make it up to you

Yesterday a jealous man
Today a lonely fool
I let love slip right through my hands
With all the hurt I’ve handed you
I’ve gotta stop your love from dying
Or I’ll be living proof
That yesterday’s jealous man
Is today’s lonely fool

Darlin’ from now on
I’ll be proud when other men notice you
Instead of gettin’ mean and loud
Like I used to do
Find some mercy in your heart
And we’ll make another start
At the love that we once knew
I won’t hurt you anymore
I’m gonna trust you now and never question you

Yesterday a jealous man
Today a lonely fool
I let love slip right through my hands
With all the hurt I’ve handed you
I’ve gotta stop your love from dying
Or I’ll be living proof
That yesterday’s jealous man
Is today’s lonely fool

I’m today’s lonely fool
