My Little One

Looking down the dusty trail

See the cattle swinging their tail

All before the snow began to fall

Faithful hound dog by my side

Once I laughed but then I cried

Because I find I have no love at all


Oh little baby

Oh please come home

I’m tired and lonely

I’m on my own

Somebody help me

For she has gone

Somebody find her

My little one


Looking down the dusty track

Looking forward thinking back

When we used to drive the herd at dawn

Now the place is awful bare

My baby’s wanted but she’s not there

Another bright eyed city girl's been born


Oh little baby

Oh please come home

I’m tired and lonely

I’m on my own

Somebody help me

For she has gone

Somebody find her

My little one

She’ll be back when the snow has gone

And I’ll be sitting here singing my song

Just the way things all used to be

She’ll have love all over her face

And we’ll be happy in our own place

Sitting all alone my gal and me


Oh little baby

Oh please come home

I’m tired and lonely

I’m on my own

Somebody help me

For she has gone

Somebody find her

My little one
