Can't you hear the night birds crying
Can't you hear the lonesome dove
Saying, "Won't you come back, darling
To the only one you love

Meet me out on the mountain
Underneath the lonesome pine
There we vowed we'd love each other
Darling, say won't you be mine

Pretty mountain laurels blooming
Pretty wildwood flowers grow
There we vowed we'd love each other
In our childhood long ago

Then I left my little darling
Lord, I wandered for too long
Many nights I longed to see her
Now I'm on my way back home
