Bill Monroe – Why Did You Wander lyrics

Oh, why oh why did you wander
Why did you ever roam
When you know that we always were happy
All alone in our old mountain home
It was down in the old Cumberland Mountains
Down in the hills of Tennessee
As she waited alone in the moonlight
It was there that she waited for me
Oh why did you leave me little darling
Why did you leave me alone
For you knew I'd be lonely without you
All alone in our old mountain home
I hope you will always be happy
No matter where you may roam
And I long to be with you up in heaven
As we were in our old mountain home
