I'm a poor broken-hearted bachelor
Living out here all alone
I'm a poor broken-hearted bachelor
Living out here all alone
Ain't got a friend in this world
An all of my people gone

The nightmare 'rouse me at night
The blue ghost haunts me all night long
The nightmare 'rouse me at night
The blue ghost haunts me all night long
They worry me so in this haunted house
I wished I was dead an gone

So I be'lieve, I be'lieve
I will try to marry an settle down
I be'lieve, I be'lileve
I will try to marry an settle down
But I'm a poor broken-hearted bachelor
Can't find a good woman nowhere around

Mmm-mmm-hmm
Ever since my dear old mother been dead
Ever since, ever since
My dear old mother been dead
Rocks have been my pillow
And the jungles have been my bed

I'm gonna try
An do the best that I can do
Because I know, good people
That I haven't even got a friend.
