I'm alone with all my sorrow it's so hard to face tomorrow
Cause I knocked and no one met me at the door
I have asked the next door neighbor what you packed and went away for
But they only say you don't live here no more
When I sailed across the blue I thought I could count on you
But I've come back home sweetheart to find you've gone
It's a shame you couldn't be here what a sorry sight to see here
When a soldier knocks and finds nobody home
[ guitar ]
When I sailed across the blue...
