I Wish I Had Someone To Love Me

Traditional A.K.A. "Someone to Love Me"
Rise Up Singing chapter: Love, p.128
G - C G / C G D - / G - C G / C D G -

I wish I had someone to love me
Someone to call me his own
Someone to sleep with me nightly
I'm weary of sleeping alone

Meet me tonight in the moonlight
Meet me tonight all alone
I have a sad story to tell you
That I'll tell by the light of the moon

Tonight is our last night together
Nearest and dearest must part
The love that has bound us together
Is shredded and torn apart

I wish I had ships on the ocean
Bind them with silver and gold
Follow the ship that he sails in
A lad only 19 years old

I wish I had wings of a swallow
Fly out over the sea
Fly to the arms of my true love
And bring him home safely to me
