TELL MY BABY I LOVE HER
(Horton - Franks, rec. 1957)
JOHNNY HORTON (Columbia 42993, 1964)

Well I said my baby was a-doin' me wrong
So I packed my bags and left her
I told her a lie 'cause I'm goin' back home
Just to tell my baby I love her
To tell my baby I love her

Well the nights were long and I felt so bad
My heart was sad and heavy
I'm goin' back home where I belong
Just to tell my baby I love her
To tell my baby I love her

I been walkin' this road since late last night
And the weather is cold and weary
But the thought of my baby's warm red lips
Keeps me warm and cheery, because I love her dearly

Well I'm almost home and I see her standin' there
Wavin' from the window
With a smile on her face and a tear in her eye
I know my baby still loves me
I know my baby still loves me
