Rough & Rocky lyrics

(charles justice/shoji tabuchi)

Darlin I have come to tell you
Tho it almost breaks my heart
But before the mornin, darlin
Well be many miles apart

Dont this road look rough and rocky
Dont that sea look wide and deep
Dont my baby look the sweetest
When hes in my arms asleep

Cant you hear the nightbirds cryin
Far across the deep blue sea
While others you are thinking
Wont you sometimes think of me

Dont this road look rough and rocky
Dont that sea look wide and deep
Dont my baby look the sweetest
When hes in my arms asleep

One more kiss before I leave you
One more kiss before we part
You have caused me lots of trouble
Darlin, you have broke my heart

Dont this road look rough and rocky
Dont that sea look wide and deep
Dont my baby look the sweetest
When hes in my arms asleep
