This song is by Eddy Arnold and appears on the album All-Time Hits From the Hills (1952).

(Guy Massey)

Oh, I wish I had someone to love me
Yes, someone to call me their own
Oh, I wish I had someone to live with
'Cause I'm tired of living alone.

Oh, please meet me tonight in the moonlight
Oh, please meet me tonight all alone
For I have a sad story to tell you
It's a story that's never been told.

--- Instrumental ---

I'll be carried to the new jail tomorrow
Leaving my poor darling alone
With the cold prison bars all around me
And my head on a pillow of stone.

Now, I have a grand ship on the ocean
All mounted with silver and gold
And before my poor darling would suffer
Oh, that ship would be anchored and sold.

Now if I had the wings like an angel
Over these prison walls I would fly
And I'd fly to the arms of my darling
And there I'd be willing to die...
