Carl Smith – Little Girl In My Hometown lyrics

Today my heart is burden I'm back to settle down
I saw the bright lights of the city I'd have all the joys of town
But there was something missing while I was roamin' round
Now I know just what was missing the little girl in my hometown
I'm back but I am too late cause she just married a friend
She waited for me lonely years for all my roaming to end
She were tired of just waiting for a love that let her down
I lost my only real true love the little girl in my hometown
[ steel ]
It's my heart that I've broken as no one has to blame
I could try now to win her but that might cause her shame
So I'll travel down this lonesome road till journey's end I'll find
I'll always love I can't forget the little girl in my hometown
I didn't mean to forget her when I went away
Ramble's all I cared to do didn't know I'd have to pay
I didn't mean to be untrue to her didn't mean to let her down
I lost my only real true love the little girl in my hometown
