Happy Or Lonesome


Come [A]back to me in my dreaming

Come [D]back to me once [A]more

Come with the love light beaming

Like [E]in the days of yore

Come [A]tell me that you still love me

And [D]that your heart is still [A]true

When the spring roses are blooming

Then [E]I'll come back to [A]you



Somewhere a heart is breaking

Calling me back to you

Memories of loved ones waiting

Each happy home and you

Absence makes my heart fonder

Is it the same with you

Are you still happy I wonder

Or do you feel lonesome too

+ A - D - A - E - A 

When the sun is sinking

In the golden west

And the birds and flowers

They have gone to rest

I wonder if you still love me

And if your heart is still true

When the spring roses are blooming

Then I'll come back to you
