I remember Grandpa telling me that I was born as the sun was comin' up early in the morn.
Told me I was born early in the morn.
When you lift your eyes and see the sun a-risin' on the far horizon early in the mornin'.
It was early in the day when I set out to roam. Went to seek my fortune far away from home.
I set out to roam far away from home.
But today when I awoke I missed my darlin' so. Gotta have her by my side forever more I know.
Need my darlin' so. Evermore I know.
So tomorrow I'll be leavin' at the break of day. Gonna hurry to my love and there I'll always stay.
At the break of day. There I'll always stay.
