"At My Window Sad and Lonely" as written by and Jeffrey Scott/guthrie Tweedy....
At my window sad and lonely
Oft times do I think of thee
Sad and lonely and I wonder
Do you ever think of me?
Every day is sad and lonely
Every night is sad and blue
Do you ever think of me my darling
As you sail that ocean blue?
At my window, sad and lonely
I stand and look across the sea
I, sad and lonely
Wonder, do you ever think of me?
Will you find another sweetheart
In some far and distant land?
Sad and lonely now I wonder if
Our boat will ever land
Ships may ply the stormy ocean
Planes may fly the stormy sky
Sad and lonely but remember
I will love you til I die

    General CommentThis song makes me picture a couple, who'v been split up for some reason, and have both gone to different countries, parted by seas, the person singing the song clearly loves this other person, and he's staring at the sea, thinking of that person. Wondering things e.g. "Do you ever think of me " or "Will you find another sweetheart "

    General CommentA few years ago I was a fire lookout in Montana and my girlfriend was living in Alaska for the summer. I only got mail every few weeks by mule train and that was my only communication with the outside world. Summers in a fire lookout can be quite lonely, nothing but thousands of hours by yourself (literally).

    My particular fire lookout looked like the bridge of my uncle's fishing vessel and during storms, it had the feel of a ship at sea. Oddly enough, this song helped me get through the times when I missed my girlfriend the most.

    General CommentI'm guessing that Woody wrote this when he was on one of his 2 tours in the navy during WWII. He would always miss his second wife, Marjorie, and I see him frantically worrying and thinking about her on his whole trip.
