I write these lines to tell you that I'm sorry I Left home,
because I'm all alone, why did you let me roam
Some one put the jinx on me, I'm up against it strong,
I'm out of work and so I wrote a song
the first verse dear is very sweet, because it speaks of you,
I'm sending you the chorus, read it through.
The second verse is not complete, I cannot rhyme the part,
That goes with aching heart, but I was never smart you know
that the chorus is the part that must be heard,
and now I've got a job to rhyme that word
now if this song should make a hit, I'll marry you in June,
and if it don't there'll be no honeymoon.
My little girl you know I love you and I long for you each day
my little girl I'm dreaming of you though you're many miles away
I see the lane down in wildwood where you promised to be true
my little girl I know you're waiting and I'm coming back to you.
