I'm Lonely Since My Baby's Gone.
Copyright, 1898, by H. W. Petrie.
Words and Music by Barry Emmerson.

When I hear de darkies singin',
An' de church-bells am a-ringin',
Den I don't know what to do.
For I feel so mighty funny
Since I lost my baby honey,
And I don't mind telling you.
For she's gone from Alabama,
Left her poor ole darkey mummy,
And she's broke my heart in two.
Oh, come back to me, my lady,
Now the groves am cool au' shady,
'Cause I'm chokin' back the tears for you.

I'm lonely since my baby's gone,
My tears are falling night And morn;
Come back to me, my lady,
The groves are cool and shady,
'Cause I'm lonely since my baby's gone.

When I see de star a-winkin',
An' it sets one off a-thinkin',
Den I don't know what to do.
For I bet you all my money
That my little baby honey
Is now mighty lonely, too;
An' she thinks of Alabama
And her poor ole darkey mammy,
An' she sometimes thinks of me;
An' I'm longin' for my lady,
Now the groves am cool an' shady-
Oh, come back my lady girl to me. - Refrain.
