I've made a few corrections here.  They appear in parenthesis (I realize 
that this is generally the notation for a bass tone within a chord, but I 
don't know of the way you're supposed to show corrections, and I don't 
want to simply delete Scott's work) next to Scott's original chords.  
Thank you for taking the time to do this Scott!

exactly right, so could someone familiar with the song let me
know if I'm on the right track?

If Only You Were Lonely
The Replacements
Album: Boink (originally c/w Twin/Tone 7" "I'm In Trouble")
trans.  Scott Owen

Intro:  C  D  G  C  G  D7

I walked out of work

and I was tired as hell

C                     A (A7)
Another day come and gone oh well

    G                   D
And somewhere there's a drink

                G      D7
with my name on it   

Well I ordered a scotch
as I bust through them doors
Spilled half on my jeans
the other half on the floor
When I saw you standing by 
that video game   D7

Well I ain't very good
but I get practice by myself
forgot my one-lines
so I just said what I felt

Chorus:	    G (Amin)       D (Bmin)    (C)    (Bmin)
	If only you were lonely

	    G      (Amin)          D7  (Bmin)   (C)   (Bmin)
	If only you was lonely, too

	    G      (Amin)          D   (Bmin)   (C)   (Bmin)
	If only you were lonely

	    (C)           G     C  G  D7
	I'd go home with you

Twenty push-ups this morning
that was half of my goal
Tonight I'll be doin' pullups
on the toilet bowl
And somewhere there's somebody
A-throwin' up    D7

Well I broke the seal on my door
poured myself to bed
A whirlpool spinnin' around in my head
There was liquor on my breath
You were on my mind   G7

And I'll be dreamin' of that smile

            G           A7  (E7)
without a care in the world

(repeat chorus as above -- slightly different lyrics, outro)

I walked out of the kitchen 
I was tired as hell
Another day's here oh well
Somewhere there's a smile
with my name on (C) it.   (G)
