Can't You Hear Me Calling?
by Bill Monroe
[[ A7 is to be done as a A7-A6-A7 ascending sort of thing ]]
The days are long, and the nights are lonely.
Since you left me all alone.
I worry so, my little darling.
I worry so, since you've been gone.
/ A7 - / D A7 / / DE A7 /
Sweetheart of mine, can't you hear me calling?
A million times I love you best.
I mistreated you, Lord and I'm sorry.
Come back to me, is my request.
I remember dear, the night we parted.
A big mistake's caused it all.
If you'll return, sunshine will follow.
To stay away would be my fall.
The days are dark, my little darling.
Oh how I need your sweet embrace.
When I woke up, the sun was shining.
When I looked up I saw your face.
