  • Every night I'm all alone never place to call my own
    Don't have no one to love me anymore
    I'm gonna pack up my grip and take a long long trip back to the one that I love so
    So long to go back to my darlin' back to the one I love so well
    I know she'll be my wife when we'll settle down for life
    For she's the one who means the world to me
    [ mandolin ]
    I can't forget the day I laughed and went away
    You told me I'd be sorry some old day
    I found it to be true so I'm headin' back to you
    Sweetheart I'm tired and I'm gonna settle down
    So long to go back...
    [ fiddle ]
    When I get back to her my ramblin' days are o'er
    We'll build a little cottage on the hill
    We'll think of days gone by sweetheart just you and I
    And now we'll live so happy evermore
    So long to go back...
