The wind is blowing around my cabin
I hate to hear that lonesome sound
I'm all alone and so downhearted
Since my truelove ain't around

I hate to see that sun a skinking
Another night, to toss and turn
Another night to dream about her
Another night for her I'll yearn.

She had no cause to go and leave me
For I had never done her wrong
She left her home and little children
Now with another man she's gone


The children they are soundly sleeping
They don't know their mother's gone
What will I do when they awaken
And I tell them of their mother's loss.

Repeat last line of Chorus to end.
