If I Should Wander Back Tonight

print

For many years I’ve been a rolling stone, my darling
Like a gypsy I have roamed from place to place
Fortune never came to me
But how happy I would be
Just to look again upon your smiling face

   Now if I should wander back tonight would you be waiting
   Would your eyes be filled with love’s own tender light
   Would your arms be empty, dear would you thrill to find me near
   Would you love me if I’d wander back tonight

When budding flowers lend their fragrance in the springtime
I recall the roses twining round your door
Fancy then I homeward stay and I seem to hear you say
That you love me as you did in days of yore

Last night I dreamed that you and I were back together
I held your hand so gently in my own
Heard you say we’d never part as I pressed you to my heart
Then I woke in tears to find myself alone
