I wish I had someone to love me,
Someone to call me their own,
Someone to stay with me always,
I'm weary of being alone.

Meet me tonight in the moonlight,
Meet me tonight all alone;
I have a sad story to tell you,
I'll tell by the light of the moon.

I wish I had someone to love me,
Someone to call me their own,
Someone to stay with me always,
I'm weary of being alone.

I'll be sent to the new jail tomorrow,
Leavin' my darlin' alone,
With the cold iron bars all around me,
And my head on a pillow of stone.

I wish I had someone to love me,
Someone to call me their own,
Someone to stay with me always,
I'm weary of being alone.

Tonight is our last night together,
The nearest and dearest must part;
For all that has bound us together,
Is quickly being torn apart.

I wish I had someone to love me,
Someone to call me their own,
Someone to stay with me always,
I'm weary of being alone.

I have a large ship on the ocean,
All laden with silver and gold;
And before my poor darlin' will suffer,
That ship will be anchored and sold.

I wish I had someone to love me,
Someone to call me their own,
Someone to stay with me always,
I'm weary of being alone.

I wish I had wings of a sparrow,
For those prison walls I must flee;
I'd fly to the arms of my true love,
And bring her home safely to me.

I wish I had someone to love me,
Someone to call me their own,
Someone to stay with me always,
I'm weary of being alone.

I'm weary of being alone.
