(Ira & Charlie Louvin/Acuff-Rose, BMI)

Darling, I'm all alone in a little mountain home.
It's lonely cold and loveless now inside,
For your childish vows of love lasted only one short year,
Then you went away to be another's bride.
(Cho.:) You will never know the pain that I felt when you left.
Should you ever wed again, let me wish you love and wealth.

Now that same old whippoorwill breaks the silence on the hill,
As I stand and gaze upon that faded wall
Where your picture used to hang in a little golden frame,
And the image of your smile I still recall. (Cho. twice)
