Prisoner's Song

The Carter Family

exibições 67

Oh, I wish I had someone to love me,
oh, someone to call me their own.
Oh, I wish I had someone to live with,
for I'm tired of living all alone.

Please do meet me tonight in the moonlight,
please do meet me tonight all alone,
for I have a sad story I'll tell you,
it's a story that's never been told.

I'll be carried to the new jail tomorrow,
leaving my poor darling alone,
with the cold prison bars all around me,
and my head on a pillow of stone.

But I have a great ship on the ocean,
all mounted with silver and gold,
and before my poor darling would suffer
this ship would be anchored and sold.

Oh, if I had the wings of a swallow,
over these prison walls I would fly,
I would fly to the arms of my poor darling,
and there I'd be willing for to die.

Please do meet me tonight in the moonlight,
please do meet me tonight all alone,
for I have a sad story I'll tell you,
it's a story that's never been told.
