Why Did You Wander?
Written by Lester Flatt & Bill Monroe



Chords


Song

chorus:

Oh why, why did you wander,
Why did you ever roam,
When you know that we always were happy,
All alone in our old mountain home.

1.

It was down in the old Cumberland Mountains,
Down in the hills of Tennessee,
As she waited alone in the moonlight,
It was there that she waited for me.

chorus:

2.

Oh why did you leave me little darling,
Why did you leave me alone,
For you knew I'd be lonely without you,
All alone in our old mountain home.

chorus:

3.

Now I hope you will always be happy,
No matter where you may roam,
And I hope to be with you up in heaven,
As we were in our old mountain home.

chorus:
