When I went home
I thought that certainly
Someone would leave the door or window open wide for me
And surely there would a welcome light
When I went home
I counted so upon
Somebody waiting up to ask me questions on and on
To ask me where I'd come
Was I alright?
But the door was bared and the window bared
And I knew with an awful dread
That somebody else, some other boy was sleeping in my bed
When I went home
I found that sad to say
You must expect to be forgotten once you've gone away
And so I couldn't stay that lonely night when I went home...

But the door was bared and the window bared
And I knew with an awful dread
That somebody else, some other boy was sleeping in my bed
When I went home
I found that sad to say
You must expect to be forgotten once you've gone away
And so I couldn't stay that lonely night when I went home...
