Eddy Arnold – The Prisoner's Song lyrics
(Guy Massey)
Oh, I wish I had someone to love me
Yes, someone to call me their own
Oh, I wish I had someone to live with
'Cause I'm tired of living alone.
Oh, please meet me tonight in the moonlight
Oh, please meet me tonight all alone
For I have a sad story to tell you
It's a story that's never been told.
--- Instrumental ---
I'll be carried to the new jail tomorrow
Leaving my poor darling alone
With the cold prison bars all around me
And my head on a pillow of stone.
Now, I have a grand ship on the ocean
All mounted with silver and gold
And before my poor darling would suffer
Oh, that ship would be anchored and sold.
Now if I had the wings like an angel
Over these prison walls I would fly
And I'd fly to the arms of my darling
And there I'd be willing to die...
