I looked at the sun, baby, it was gettin’ low I looked at my baby, she was standin’ in her door You remember the day you drove me from your door? If I hadn’a loved you, I wouldn’a come here no more I’m gonna hitch up my buggy, I’m gonna saddle up my black mare I’m gonna find my companion anywhere, anywhere, anywhere

I looked at the sun, baby, it was gettin’ low
I looked at my baby, she was standin’ in her door

You remember the day you drove me from your door?
If I hadn’a loved you, I wouldn’a come here no more

I’m gonna hitch up my buggy, I’m gonna saddle up my black mare
I’m gonna find my companion anywhere, anywhere, anywhere

Sometimes I live in the country,  Sometimes I live in town,  Sometimes I take a great notion  To jump in the river and drown
