Ricky Skaggs — Why Did You Wander lyrics

Oh why, oh why did you wander?
Oh, why did you ever roam?
When you knew that we always were happy
All alone in our old mountain home

It was down in the old Cumberland Mountains
Down in the hills of Tennessee
As she waited alone in the moonlight
It was there that she waited for me

Oh why, oh why did you wander?
Oh, why did you ever roam?
When you knew that we always were happy
All alone in our old mountain home
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/ricky-skaggs-why-did-you-wander-lyrics.html ]
Oh, why did you leave me little darling?
Why did you leave me alone?
For you knew I'd be lonely without you
All alone in our old mountain home

Oh why, oh why did you wander?
Oh, why did you ever roam?
When you knew that we always were happy
All alone in our old mountain home

Now I hope you will always be happy
No matter where you may roam
And I hope to be with you up in Heaven
As we were in our old mountain home

Oh why, oh why did you wander?
Oh, why did you ever roam?
When you knew that we always were happy
All alone in our old mountain home

Oh why, oh why did you wander?
Oh, why did you ever roam?
When you knew that we always were happy
All alone in our old mountain home
