Just A-Wearyin' for You (Paul Robeson)

Paul Robeson

"Just A-Wearyin' for You" (karaoke)

"Just A-Wearyin' for You" (sheet music)

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.
