Susie Darlin'
Tommy Roe

I stood a-watchin' all night long
I stood a-watchin' all night long
I stood a-watchin' till you went away
You were a girl of many charms
Oh, how I loved you in my arms
I never thought that you would ever go
'cause I loved you so

CHORUS
Oh, uh, Susie darlin'
I thought you knew 
You were all the world to me
All my dreams come true

I stood a-cryin' all night long
I stood a-cryin' all night long
Cryin' wishin' you'd come back to me-ee
Thinking of all the dreams we knew
Now that you're gone they won't come true
My heart is empty without you
Nothin' there but misery

CHORUS

Now-ow I stand a-watchin' all night long
I stand a-watchin' all night long
Knowing that life has nothing left for me-ee
I'll wait around most patiently
Hopin' you will return to me
Till that happy day I will always be
Watchin' all night long

Oh, uh, Susie darlin'
I thought you knew 
You were all the world to me
All   my   dreams   come true
