There's Someone Awaiting For Me


All the people today they are going far away

To the mountains the lakes or the sea

There's a little plot out west

That I always love the best

And there's someone awaiting there for me


   She'll be happy she'll be free

   When she wanders alone with me

   She'll be knitting white lace

   When I meet her at the gate

   And there's someone awaiting for me


There are birds in every tree

And they sing among the leaves

But there's none so happy as me

I am going out west

And there I'll do my best

To build a little home for you and me


O the birds that fly above

Singing their songs of love

O'er the meadows the valleys so deep

Their voices so sweet

That they sing me to sleep

For I know my darling will not weep
