Go ‘Way from My Window

Photocollage by D Young

Go ‘way from my window
Go ‘way from my door
Go ‘way, way way from my bedside
And bother me no more
And bother me no more

I’ll give you back your letters
I’ll give you back my ring
But I’ll never forget my own true love
As long as songbirds sing
As long as songbirds sing

Go on tell all your brothers
Tell all your sisters too
That the reason why my heart is broke
Is on account of you
Is on account of you

Go on your way, be happy
Go on your way and rest
But remember dear, that you are the one
I really gave the best
I really gave the best

Go ‘way from my window
Go ‘way from my door
Go ‘way, way way from my bedside
And bother me no more
And bother me no more
And bother me no more

—John Jacob Niles
