Come Along Julie
Jimmie Rodgers Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Down through the meadows, I was humming a song
Looking at the stars as I take my little julie back home

Watching, her eyes as I tell her of the day
The day that's gonna come when I'll take my little julie away

Come along, Julie
Follow the sun
We'll be leaving, long before the fall winds come

Listen for robin, singing in the trees
Look toward the hills and be watching little julie for me

Come along, Julie
Follow the sun
We'll be leaving long before the fall winds come




Long before the fall winds come
Long before the fall winds come
