Just a-wearyin' for you,
All the time a-feelin' blue,
Wishin' for you, wonderin' when
You'll be comin' home again.
Restless, don't know what to do,
Just a-wearyin' for you.

Mornin' comes, the birds awake,
Used to sing so for your sake
But there's sadness in the notes
That comes trillin' from their throats.
Seem to feel your absence, too,
Just awearyin' for you.

Evenin' comes, I miss you more
When the dark gloom's round the door,
Seems just like you or-ter be
Theere to open it for me.
Latch goes tinklin', thrills me through,
Sets me wearyin' for you.
