Say Won’t You Be Mine

Can’t you hear the nightbirds crying
Can’t you hear that lonesome dove
Sayin’ won’t you come back darling
To the only one you love

   Meet me out on the mountain
   Underneath the lonesome pine
   Where we vowed we’d love each other
   Darlin’ say won’t you be mine

Where the mountain laurels blooming
And the wildwood blossom grow
There we vowed to love each other
In our childhood long ago

Then I left my little darling
Lord I’ve rambled for too long
Many times I prayed to see her
Now I’m on my way back home
