Every night when the sun goes in

Language: English

Ev’ry night when the sun goes in,
Ev’ry night when the sun goes in,
Ev’ry night when the sun goes in
I hang my head and mournful cry.

Refrain:
   True love don’t weep, true love don’t mourn;
   True love don’t weep, true love don’t mourn;
   True love don’t weep nor mourn for me,
   I’m goin’ away to Marbletown.

I wish to the Lord that train would come,
I wish to the Lord that train would come,
I wish to the Lord that train would come
To take me back where I come from.

Refrain
