"My Sweetie Went Away" as written by and Lou Handman Roy Turk....
I've got a lovesick tale to tell to you,
Tho' it's no affair of mine
It's 'bout a gal named sue and boy named Lou
They were fighting all the time
Lou came home one afternoon
Found an empty dining room
Without a word his turtledove had flown
So he began to moan.

My sweetie went away
But she didn't say where
She didn't say when
She didn't say why
Or bid me goodbye
And I'm as blue as can be

I know she loves another one
But she didn't say who
She didn't say which
She didn't say what
That rascal has got
That took my sweetie from me

I'm like a little lost sheep
And I can't sleep
But I keep
Tryin' to forget
The one I love has gone
And left me all alone

I moan my sweetie went away
But she didn't say where
She didn't say when
She didn't say why
I know that I'll die
Why don't she hurry back home

You oughta see
This lovesick fellow, lou
Doesn't do a thing but sigh
And while he's wond'ring
What became of sue
He's a sight for any eye

Bought some poison
Bought a gun
Says goodbye to ev'ryone
And while he's doping out some way to die
He can't forget to cry

My sweetie went away
But she didn't say where
She didn't say when
She didn't say why
Or bid me goodbye
And I'm as blue as can be

I know she loves another one
But she didn't say who
She didn't say which
She didn't say what
That rascal has got
That took my sweetie from me

I'm like a little lost sheep
And I can't sleep
But I keep
Tryin' to forget
The one I love has gone
And left me all alone

I moan my sweetie went away
But she didn't say where
She didn't say when
She didn't say why
I know that I'll die
Why don't she hurry back home
