Knockin' On Your Door

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

Chorus
I'm a-knockin' on your door again, my darling
I'm a-knockin' on your door, please answer me
Well I've tried to make you realize, my darling
That no one else was ever meant for me

Well I remember, dear, you said you'd always love me
And you promised me a happiness so true
But now you've gone away, dear, with another
And I wonder if you feel the way I do

[chorus]

I'm a-knockin' on your door again, my darling
I'm a-knockin' on your door, please answer me
I never read the letters that you wrote, my little darling
When I'm sailing far across the deep blue sea

I'm a-knockin' on your door again, my darling
To return the letters that you wrote to me
I'm a-knockin' on your door again, my darling
This time, honey, I'm sure things gonna be

So goodbye, my dear, I know you'll soon forget me
And I hope that you find happiness so true
But whenever you make love, sweetheart, remember
That my lovin' always be the same for you

[chorus]
[chorus]
