lyrics

My baby left me for the north country
Where the wintry wind does blow
Oh I wait at home, where time has never passed so slowly
Way down south in North Carolina
Where the moon hangs bright and low
Oh, I move the days along, workin’ my fingers to the bone

I’ll be a’waitin when you come on home, home to me
I’ve kept the fires burnin’ way down low
Oh come home to me

The days are shorter and the nights are long
The hours go crawlin’ by
Oh hang my head and cry
How I’m longin’ for my darlin’
I keep on listenin’ for our key in the door
While I drive myself insane
Oh in my arms once more
The world will be set right again

I’ll be a’waitin when you come on home, home to me
I’ve kept the fires burnin’ way down low
Oh come home to me

My baby left me for the north country
Where the wintry wind does blow
Oh I wait at home, where time has never passed so slowly

about

Sarah Shook & the Disarmers Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Sarah Shook & The Disarmers are a country band with a sneer, a bite, and no apologies. Shook's original songs take on the usual country spin on shitty relationships, bad decisions, and excessive alcohol consumption for damn good reasons.
