Here's a nice little chorus song:

FORSAKEN LOVER

Chorus
How I miss you
Oh how I miss you
How I wish that you were here
I am your old forsaken lover
And my heart is sad and drear

I will tell a sad sad story

I will tell a story so true
About an old forsaken lover
And a heart both sad and blue
It was on one summer evening
It was on an evening so clear
You sailed across that lonesome ocean
Yes, you sailed, you left me here

Now I miss you ...

My life is like some stormy cloud bank
Where the sun don't never shine through
My eyes ain't been dry
Been dry for on minute
Since those warships
Sailed off with you

Now I miss you ...

Down where the minglewood lies sleeping
Down where the ripplin' waters glide
I fall down by
My bud and roses
Pray you'll come
Take me for your bride

How I miss you ...

Oops, there should be no space after the 'sad sad story' line and the fourth line of the second verse should read 'one minute'.

For anyone that isn't familiar with Hazel Dickens' version of this song I strongly recommend it.
