I've been walking, walking in the moonlight,
tripping in the starlight, Lord, I'm feeling down,
walking in the shadows, sneaking down a side road,
come early morning I'll be there on the edge of town.
I was a thinking, thinking 'bout a good thing,
thinking 'bout a sweet dream in my honey's eyes
And I was a-sinkin', feeling kind of lonesome
Come early morning I'll be home at my honey's side.
I have drifted up across the mountain
And I have stumbled down the other side
And I've been tempted, tried and troubled
Come early morning I'll be home and satisfied.
She gives me little loving, gives me little sunshine,
makes me have a good time, Lord, when I'm feeling blue
I couldn't refuse her, well I couldn't misuse her
Come early morning I'll be home with my honey dew.
