I've got a lovesick tale to tell to you
Though it ain't no fail of mine, it's about a gal
Named Sue and a boy named Lou

They were fightin' all the time
Sue came home one afternoon
And found an empty dining room

Without a word a turtledove had flown
Sue began to moan, My sweetie went away
But he didn't say where, he didn't say when
He didn't say why, without biddin' me goodbye
Oh I'm blue as I can be

I know he loves another one but he didn't say who
He didn't say when, he didn't say what
His momma 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, my travelin' poppa
He left his momma all alone, I groan

My sweetie went away but he didn't say where
He didn't say when, he didn't say why
I know I'll die, why don't he hurry on home
