Oh mercy dear, you caused my heart
It really is wrong, that we must part
You learned I love you, more’s all the rest
Your leaving me, breaks my happiness

I’ll count the hours, lover when I’m gone
Think of you, wish you back home
My lonesome heart, will shake with fear
The very hour, I call your name

Every hour:
Not at ease, with anyone else
I’ll haunt the line, for you I know
I’m asking you dear, please don’t go
Oh honey babe, mama ray
Glory be, I see that thing
