I Hope You’ve Learned

I’ve been away for just a year
Have you forgotten me my dear
The judge said I must pay the cost
I never knew how much I lost

Until they send me far away
Where each minute seems a day
But maybe someday I’ll be free
Will you be waiting there for me

I’m in this cell because of you
The crime I did you drove me too
My jealous heart just could not stand
To see you with another man

I hope someday that you will learn
And broken hearted you return
But listen darlin’ please don’t wait
For maybe then will be too late
