I Wonder if She Waits for Me Tonight

 

(Bob Nolan)

 

Sing Along with the Sons of the Pioneers

 

“Here within my lonely room

Dreams close in, I’m leaving soon.

I wonder if she waits for me tonight.

Old-time songs we used to know

Brings her back from long ago.

I wonder if she waits for me tonight.”

 

Strolling down a country lane through the twilight hours.

There I found a lonely shack nestled ‘mong the flowers.

Through the window I could see an aged man in reverie

With eyes half-closed in sweet repose he sang so tenderly….

 

“Here within my lonely room

Dreams close in, I’m leaving soon.

I wonder if she waits for me tonight.

Old-time songs we used to know

Brings her back from long ago.

I wonder if she waits for me tonight.”

 

“I still recall our last farewell,

Her soft brown hair in ringlets fell

Across my arm as there I held her tight.

If an angel from the sky

Comes to close my weary eyes

Then I’ll know she waits for me tonight.”
