Just Awearyin’ for You

Lyrics written by Frank Lebby Stanton and published in his Songs of the Soil (1894)
Music by Carrie Jacobs-Bond, published as part of Seven Songs as Unpretentious as the Wild Rose in 1901

Just a’wearyin for you
All the time a’feelin blue
Wishin for you, wonderin when
You’ll be coming home again
Restless don’t know what to do
Just a’wearyin for you

Morning comes, the birds awake
Seem to sing so for your sake
But there’s sadness in the notes
That come trillin from their throats
Seem to feel a sadness too
Just a’wearyin for you

Evening comes I miss you more
When the dark gloom’s round the door
Seems just like you ought to be
Here to open it for me
Latch goes tinkling, thrills me through
Sets me wearyin’ for you
Just a’wearyin dear for you
