The Penalty Of Love - Bubber Miley & His Mileage Makers

The Penalty Of Love

Bubber Miley & His Mileage Makers

(Unknown, 1930)

The penalty of love is being alone
Sitting at home, hoping he'll groan
To tell you that he still loves you
And that he's lonely too
The penalty of love is closing your eyes
Hiding you sighs, feelings and the lies
He tells you love is devotion
Painting your grey skies blue
All night, tears that you shed
Tossing in bed at gloaming
Daylight, thou hide my fears
Holding you head as the sun comes in
The penalty of love is longing to be
Continually with some certainty
Who isn't here to caress you
That is the penalty of ...
Washed for him and slaved for him
The best days of my life
He left me when he got himself
A young gal for his wife
Let him go, let him go
Wherever he must roam
When that gal get's tired of him
I told her to send him home, sweet home
That is the penalty of love
That is the penalty of love
