Rough And Rocky



Darling, I have come to tell you
Though it almost breaks my heart
But before the morning, darling
We’ll be many miles apart

Don’t this road look rough and rocky?
Don’t that sea look wide and deep?
Don’t my baby look the sweetest
When he’s in my arms asleep?

Can’t you hear the night birds crying
Far across the deep blue sea?
When of others you are thinking
Won’t you sometimes think of me?

One more kiss before I leave you
One more kiss before we part
You have caused me lots of trouble
Darling, you have broke my heart
