There's Someone More Lonesome Than You

You say you're feeling blue,
You don't know what to do,
And as each day goes by,
It seems the same to you,
Then picture in your mind,
Someone you left behind,
A simple country cottage,
And in there you will find.
There's Someone more lonesome than you,
Someone with true eyes of blue,
Day by day she wanders through the wildwood,
Dreaming of the love that once she knew,
She's waiting and sighing in vain,
For you promised you'd be true,
While you're living in the bright lights
with the merry and the gay,
There's a loving heart you've broken
just to pass the time away,
And she is more lonesome,
more lonesome than you.
You say the world is wrong,
The brook still sings it's song,
The meadow grass is green,
Go back where you belong,
And make her poor heart glad,
She wants you mighty bad,
Just think how long she's waiting,
and if you're feeling sad.
