And if you're waitin' at the house where I should be
And I'll be by, don't you cry
And if the door is shut, the lock is open free
And I'll be by, don't you cry, wait for me

And if you're lookin' for a place to rest your head
You can sleep a hundred years inside my bed
And if the night wind blows a shiver and a chill
Take my blankets down and use them all you will

And if you're waitin' at the house where I should be
Oh I'll be by, don't you cry
And if the door is shut, the lock is open free
I'll be by, don't you cry, wait for me

And if your stomach cries, you need something to eat
Take my food because it's layin' at your feet
When early mornin' brings a blinkin' of the eye
Turn around 'cause I'll be layin' at your side, yes I will

And if you're waitin' at the house where I should be
And if the door is shut, the lock is open free
Wait for me
