Having quarreled with his sweetheart, Jack joins a band of cowboys. He decides to return home and ask forgiveness after singing about a faithful girl. He arrives too late; his sweetheart has died with his name on her lips
He was just a lonely cowboy
With a heart so brave and true
And he learned to love a maiden
With eyes of Heaven's own blue

They learned to love each other
As they named their wedding day
When a quarrel came between them
And Jack, he rode away

He joined a band of cowboys
And tried to forget her name
And out on the lonely prairie
She waits for him the same

One night when work was finished
Just at the close of day
Someone said sing a song Jack
T'will drive those cares away

When Jack began his singing
His mind, it wandered back
For he sang of a maiden
Who was waiting for her Jack
Jack left the camp next morning
Breathing his sweetheart's name
He said I'll ask forgiveness
For I know that I'm to blame

But when he reached the prairie
He found a new made mound
And his friends they sadly told him
That they laid his loved one down

They said as she was dying
She breathed her sweetheart's name
And asked them with her last breath
To tell Jack when he came

Your sweetheart waits for you, Jack
Your sweetheart waits for you
Out on the lonely prairie
Where the skys are always blue
