Why Did You Wander

Song Author Lester Flatt og Bill Monroe Performer: Ricky Skaggs Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]Oh why oh why did you [C]wander
Oh [G]why did you ever [D7]roam   
[G]When you know that we always were [C]happy
All [G]alone in our [D7]old mountain [G]home

It was down in the old Cumberland [C]Mountains
[G]Down in the hills of [D7]Tennessee
As [G]she waited alone in the [C]moonlight
It was [G]there that [D7]she waited for [G]me  

[G]Oh why oh why did you [C]wander
Oh [G]why did you ever [D7]roam   
[G]When you know that we always were [C]happy
All [G]alone in our [D7]old mountain [G]home

Oh why did you leave me little [C]darling
[G]Why did you leave me [D7]alone
[G]For you knew I'd be lonely without [C]you  
All [G]alone in our [D7]old mountain [G]home

[G]Oh why oh why did you [C]wander
Oh [G]why did you ever [D7]roam   
[G]When you know that we always were [C]happy
All [G]alone in our [D7]old mountain [G]home

Now I hope you will always be h[C]appy
[G]No matter where you may [D7]roam   
[G]And I hope to be with you up in [C]heaven
As we [G]were in our [D7]old mountain [G]home

[G]Oh why oh why did you [C]wander
Oh [G]why did you ever [D7]roam   
[G]When you know that we always were [C]happy
All [G]alone in our [D7]old mountain [G]home


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

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 know 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 know that we always were happy
All alone in our old mountain home
