i’m lonely and blue
Jimmie Rodgers Lyrics


I'm lonely and blue, I'm down hearted too
Nobody but you can cheer me
You left me alone, you wandered from home
Oh, why do you roam, my dearie?

You promised you'd be just mine, sweetheart
That you and I would never part
You've broken your vow and left me but now
I'll pray that somehow you'll return, sweetheart
If you only knew, my longing for you
That I am still true to you, dear
Perhaps you would say, "I'm sorry", someday
"That I went away from you, dear"

You promised you'd be just mine, sweetheart
That you and I would never part
You've broken your vow and left me but now
I'll pray that somehow you'll return, sweetheart

This world is not my home
I'm just passing through
My treasures are laid up
Somewhere beyond the blue
… The Angels beckon me
From Heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home
In this world anymore
… Oh Lord, you know
I have no friend like you
If Heaven's not my home
Then Lord what will I do
… The Angels beckon me
From Heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home
In this world anymore
… I have a lovin' mother
Just hovering up in Gloryland
And I don't expect to stop
Until I shake her hand
… She's waiting now for me
In Heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home
In this world anymore
… Oh Lord, you know
I have no friend like you
If Heaven's not my home
Then Lord what will I do
… The Angels beckon me
From Heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home
In this world anymore
… Just over in Gloryland
We'll live eternaly
The saints on every hand
Are shouting victory
… Their songs of sweetest praise
Drift back from Heaven's shore
And I can't feel at home
In this world anymore
Oh Lord, you know
I have no friend like you
If Heaven's not my home
Then Lord what will I do
… The Angels beckon me
From Heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home
In this world anymore...

As a Protestant Minister's son, I recall this song being sang at home and to this day at my age of 65 this brings pleasant memories of the time the my family sang this at home. Glory to God in the Highest.

When you are down and out,feeling small not feeling good... Jim Reeves' songs are the best medicine.
