I've been away for just a year
Have you forgotten me, my dear?
The judge said I must pay the cost
I never knew how much I'd lost

Until they sent me far away
Where each minute seems a day
But maybe someday I'll be free
Will you be waiting there for me?

I'm in this cell because of you
The crime I did you drove me to
My jealous heart just could not stand
To see you with another man

Until they sent me far away
Where each minute seems a day
But maybe someday I'll be free
Will you be waiting there for me?

I hope someday that you will learn
And brokenhearted you'll return
But listen, darlin', please don't wait
For maybe then will be too late

Until they sent me far away
Where each minute seems a day
But maybe someday I'll be free
Will you be waiting there for me?
