Early in the morning when the dew is on
Each and every rose bud you will find me gone
So knock me down and pick me up, and knock me down again
Break my heart, steal my gold and slander my good name

Seven lonely hours on the morning train
Takes me to a place where I won't come back again
Seven lonely Pullmans speedin' down the line
Takin' me away from an old love of mine

Sixteen miles to seven lakes way up among the pines
In some hidden valley where the twirlin' river twines
Where the fish swim up and down and the sparklin' waterfalls
Where the thunder rolls and the lonely puma calls

Somewhere on the mountain, I'll take another name
Rid my mind of memories and start my life again
Somewhere in the wilderness, I'll build a cabin small
Then forget so I won't remember you at all
