LITTLE BOY BLUE
(Hoyt Johson)
HOYT JOHNSON (RCA 47-7607, 1959)

Well, I was in the haystack vast asleep
Somebody stole my little bo-peep
My cow left home and the sheep left too
And my little bo-peep left a little boy blue
I ain't huntin' my cow, ain't huntin' my sheep
'Cause I gotta find my little bo-peep
I just gotta find my little bo-peep

Well, my little bo-peep never was untrue
But now she's gone and left a little boy blue
Well, I don't know just where she's at
But I think she's a rockin' with some cool cat
When I find the tom that took her to town
I'm a gonna roll his collar down
I'm a gonna roll his collar down

Been a blowin' my horn all over town
But my little bo-peep just can be found
Well, I can't eat and I can't sleep
'Cause I gotta find my little bo-peep
She told me her love was true
But now she's gone and left a little boy blue
Now she's gone and left a little boy blue
