“Just A-Wearyin’ for You” Karaoke (midi with lyrics).

Performer: Paul Robeson.
Lyrics: Frank Lebby Stanton.
Tune: Carrie Jacobs-Bond.


Just a-wearyin’ for you,
All the time a-feelin’ blue,
Wishin’ for you, wond’rin’ when
You’ll be comin’ home again,
Restless, don’t know what to do,
Just a-wearyin’ for you.

Mornin’ comes, the birds awake,
Used to sing so for your sake,
But there’s sadness in the notes
That come trillin’ from their throats,
Seem to feel your absence, too,
Just a-wearyin’ for you.

Evenin’ comes, I miss you more,
When the dark glooms ’round the door,
Seems just like you ought to be
There to open it for me,
Latch goes tinklin’, thrills me through,
Sets me wearyin’ for you.
