Poor little lonesome swallow, up in the tree top high
Poor little lonesome swallow, I hear your lonely sigh
You miss your nest where life is best, and so do I

Lonesome swallow, lonesome swallow, I know you're blue
Lonesome swallow, lonesome swallow, I'm lonesome too
If you'll spread your wing and fly, you can lead me back to my home

All over the valley, streets and alleys and winding trails
Over highways rocky byways through _____ and _____
Lonesome swallow I'm gonna follow you home

Why, walking will be sweet to my weary feet, when I raise my eyes
See you fly in here, bravely try in here, up there in the skies
____ take it if I make it no more I roam
Lonesome swallow I'm gonna follow you home

I still say walking will be sweet to my weary feet, when I raise my eyes
And see you fly in here, bravely tryin' it, well beyond the lonely skies
It makes me wanna wonder way down yonder no more I roam
Cause lonesome swallow I'm gonna follow you home
