    Oh, I wish I had some-one to love me
    Some-one to call me their own
    Oh, I wish I had some-one to live with
    'Cause I'm ti-red of liv-in' a-lone

    Oh, please meet me to-night in the moon-light
    Please meet me to-night all a-lone
    For I have a sad sto-ry to tell you
    It's a sto-ry that's nev-er been told

    I'll be car-ried to the new jail to-mor-row
    Leav-ing my poor dar-ling all a-lone
    With the cold pris-on bars all a-round me
    And my head on a pil-low of stone

    Now I have a grand ship on the o-cean
    All mount-ed with sil-ver and gold
    And be-fore my poor dar-lin' would suf-fer
    Oh! that ship would be an-chored and sold

    Now if I had wings like an an-gel
    O-ver these pri-son walls I would fly
    And I'd fly to the arms of my poor dar-lin'
    And there I'd be wil-ling to die
