Eddy Arnold - "Nellie Sits a Waitin'" lyrics

(Jan Crutchfield - Gerald Nelson)
Nellie sits a waitin',

Waitin' for her Johnny to come home
Johnny come on home.

Waitin' all alone
Johnny courted Nellie,
Lost his life.
She would be his wife
Johnny went to battle,

Nellie promised Johnny
Her love for him she'd save
For Johnny's in Savannah
Nellie sits a waitin',
An oak tree marks his grave.

Waitin' for her Johnny to come home
Waitin' all alone
Johnny come on home.

Who's sittin' all alone
No one will tell Nellie
But Johnny can't come home.

All abided that's coming back
Waitin' for her Johnny to come home
Nellie sits a waitin',
Waitin' all alone
Johnny come on home...
