A Lonesome Night

In the pale moonlight we quarreled one night
Our hearts were young and free
I left her there alone at night
I thought she was two-timin’ me

   On a lonesome night and far from home
   I heard a mourn-ful sound
   The girl I love is call-in’ me
   She thinks I turned her down

She begged me not to leave her there
She said she had been true
But a jealous heart would not believe
Oh how I long for you

So now I’m on my way back home
Sweetheart do you still care
I promise never to leave your side
And your love I always share
