Oh, I [C]wish I had [C7]someone to [F]love me,
oh, [G]someone to [G7]call me their [C]own.
Oh, I wish I had [C7]someone to [F]live with,
for I'm [G]tired of [G7]living all [C]alone.
Please do meet me tonight in the moonlight,
please do meet me tonight all alone,
for I have a sad story I’ll tell you,
it's a story that's never been told.
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.
But I have a great ship on the ocean,
all mounted with silver and gold,
and before my poor darling would suffer
this ship would be anchored and sold.
Oh, if I had the wings of a swallow,
over these prison walls I would fly,
I would fly to the arms of my poor darling,
and there I'd be willing for to die.
