At my window sad and lonely,
Oft times do I think of thee
Sad and lonely and I wonder
Do you ever think of me?

Every day is sad and lonely
Every night is sad and blue
Do you ever think of me my darling
As you sail that ocean blue?

At my window, sad and lonely,
I stand and look across the sea
I, sad and lonely,
Wonder, do you ever think of me?

Will you find another sweetheart
In some far and distant land?
Sad and lonely now I wonder if
Our boat will ever land?

Ships may ply the stormy ocean
Planes may fly the stormy sky
Sad and lonely but remember
I will love you till I die

WORDS: Woody Guthrie 1939 - MUSIC: Jeff Tweedy
