I'm Sad And I'm Lonely

Iím sad and Iím lonely
My poor heart will break
My sweetheart loves another
Lord, I wished I was dead

My checks once were reddest
As the buds on the rose
But now they are whiter
Than the lilies that grow

Young ladies take warning
Take warning from me
Donít place your affection
On a young man so free

Heíll hug you and kiss you
Heíll tell you more lies
Than thereís cross-ties on the railroad
Or the stars in the skies

Well Iíll build me a cabin
On the mountain so high
Where the blackbirds canít see me
Nor hear my sad cry
