On a lonesome night, I'm far from home
I heard a mournful sound
The girl I love is calling me
She thinks I've turned her down

In the pale moonlight we quarreled one night
Our heart's were young and free
I left her there alone that night
I thought she was two timing me

On a lonesome night, I'm far from home
I heard a mournful sound
The girl I love is calling me
She thinks I've turned her down

She begged me not to leave her there
She said that she'd been true
But a jealous heart could not believe
Oh, how I long for you

On a lonesome night, I'm far from home
I heard a mournful sound
The girl I love is calling me
She thinks I've turned her down

She thinks I've turned her down
