I write these lines to tell you that I'm sorry I left home,
Because I'm all alone,Why did you let me roam.
Some one put the jinx on me,I'm up against it strong,
I'm out of work and so I wrote a song.
The first verse dear is very sweet, because it speaks of you,
I'm sending you the chorus, read it thro'.
My little girl you know I love you,
And I long for you each day,
My little girl I'm dreaming of you,
Tho' you're many miles away,
I see the lane, down in the wildwood,
Where you promised to be true.
My little girl, I know you're waiting
And I'm coming back to you.
The second verse is not complete, I cannot rhyme the part,
That goes with aching heart,But I was never smart.
You know that the chorus is the part that must be hard,
And now I've got a job to rhyme that word.
Now if this song should make a hit,
I'll marry you in June,
And if it don't there'll be no honeymoon.
