Oh! I wish I had someone to love me,
G7                        C
Someone to call me their own.
Oh! I wish I had someone to live with, 
          G                 C
Cause I'm tired of livin' alone.

         C                        F
I'll be carried to the new jail tomorrow,
        G7                C  
Leaving my poor darling alone
With cold prison bars all around me
        G7                 C
And my head on a pillow of stone.


      C                        F
Now I have a grand ship on the ocean
     G7                      C 
All mounted with silver and gold
And before my poor darling would suffer
          G7                         C 
Oh! that ship would be anchored and sold

       C                   F
Now if I had wings like an angel
       G7                        C
Over these prison walls I would fly
And I'd fly to the arms of my poor darlin'
      G7                    C
And there I'd be willing to die
