(by J. R. Robertson and R. Manuel)
Katie`s been gone since the spring time;
She wrote one time`n sent her love.
Katie`s been gone for such a long time now.
I wonder what kind of love she`s thinkin` of.
If you can hear me,
I can`t wait to have ya near me.
Oh, Katie, since ya caught that bus,
Well, I just don`t know how things are with us.
I`m still here and you`re out there.
Katie laughed when I said I was lonely.
She said, There`s no need t`feel that way.
Katie said that I was her only one,
But then I wonder why she didn`t wanna stay.
Dear Katie, if I`m the only one,
How much longer will you be gone?
Oh, Katie, won`t ya tell me straight:
How much longer do I have to wait?
I`ll believe you,
But please come through.
I know it`s wrong to be apart this long;
You should be here, near me.
Katie`s been gone and now her face is slowly fading from my mind.
She`s gone to find some newer places,
Left the old life far behind.
Dear Katie, dont ya miss your home?
I dont see why you had to roam.
Dear Katie, since you`ve been away
I lose a little something every day
I need you here, but you`re still out there.
Dear Katie, please drop me a line,
just write, Love, to tell me you`re fine.
Oh, Katie, if you can hear me,
I just cant wait to have you near me.
I can only think
Where are you,
What ya do, may be there`s someone new.
