Tonight I'm alone without you, my dear,
It seems there's a longing for you still;
All I have to do now is sit alone and cry,
In our little cabin home on the hill.

Oh, someone has taken you from me,
And left me here all alone;
Just listen to the rain beatin' on my window pane,
In our little cabin home on the hill.

I hope you are happy tonight as you are,
But in my heart there's a longing for you still;
I just keep it there so I won't be alone,
In our little cabin home on the hill.

Oh, someone has taken you from me,
And left me here all alone;
Just listen to the rain beatin' on my window pane,
In our little cabin home on the hill.

Now, when you have come to the end of your way,
And find there's no more happiness for you,
Just let your thoughts turn back once more,
if you will,
To our little cabin home on the hill.

Oh, someone has taken you from me,
And left me here all alone;
Just listen to the rain beatin' on my window pane,
In our little cabin home on the hill.

Someone has taken you from me,
And left me here all alone;
Just listen to the rain beatin' on my window pane,
In our little cabin home on the hill.
