Don't Go Out Tonight, Dear Father

Don't Go Out Tonight, Dear Father

Don't go out tonight dear father
Don't refuse this once I pray
Tell your comrades mother's dying
Soon her soul will pass away
Tell them too, of little Willie
Him we also much do love
How his little form is drooping
Soon to bloom again above

Don't go out tonight dear father
Think oh think how sad twill be
When the angels come to take her
Father won't be there to see
Tell me that you love dear mother
Lying in that cold cold room
You don't love your comrades better
Cursing there in that saloon
Oh dear father do not leave us
Don't refuse this once I pray
When the angels come to take her
Father won't be there to see

Morning found the little pleader
Cold and helpless on the floor
Lying where he madly struck her
On that chilly night before
Lying there with hands uplifted
Feebly uttering words of prayer
Heavenly father please forgive him
Reunite us all up there
