Hey Little One lyrics

Hey, hey little one so far from home and so alone
Hey, hey little one I'm just like you I'm lonely too
The road we ride is a long, long road when you are all alone
But I found you and I found our love, a love I've never known

Hey, hey little one don't go away, tell me you'll stay
Tell me, tell me, tell me you'll stay
