Waiting For You-Mississippi John Hurt
G position, standard tuning

SPOKEN: I want to do this one on account I know my wife's waiting for me. This is "Waiting For You".

INTRO

Will you be faithful to me?
Is your heart good and true?
While it's in sorrow, and in pain
Darling, I'm waiting for you
REFRAIN: Because of your cruel ways
I may never live to know
In justice to my true love
I'll forgive you before I go

My heartbeat would quicken
My cares would all fly away
If you would kindly let me know
That you welcome me today
REFRAIN: Because of your cruel ways
I may never live to know
In justice to my true love
I'll forgive you before I go

Weigh that leisure, my darling
Let your thoughts drift to me
Why it's I have parted from you
Happiness I never will see
REFRAIN: Because of your cruel ways
I may never live to know
In justice to my true love
I'll forgive you before I go

The days are dreary
The nights are so long
With the heartache for you
I'm singing this sad song
REFRAIN: Because of your cruel ways
I may never live to know
In justice to my true love
I'll forgive you before I go

If we can not meet again
'Til our troubles are all through
Beyond the river of Jordan
I'll still be waiting for you
REFRAIN: Because of your cruel ways
I may never live to know
In justice to my true love
I'll forgive you before I go

When you see my grassy mound
Then our troubles, all through
My days have been shortened
Whilst I've been waiting for you
REFRAIN: Because of your cruel ways
I may never live to know
In justice to my true love
I'll forgive you before I go

If I had a pass to Glory
And it did not read "for two"
I would trade it off, dear darling
And stay on Earth with you
REFRAIN: Because of your cruel ways
I may never live to know
In justice to my true love
I'll forgive you before I go
