High Noon (do Not Forsake Me)
Dick Curless

Do not forsake me oh my darlin' on this our wedding day
Do not forsake me oh my darlin' wait wait along
I do not know what fate awaits me I only know I must be brave
And I must face the man who hates me
Or lie a coward a craven coward or lie a coward in my grave

Oh to be torn twixt love and duty spposing I lose my fairhaired beauty
Look at that big hand move along nearing high noon
He made a vow while in state's prison vowed it would be my life or his'n
I'm not afraid of death but oh what will I do if you leave me

Do not forsake me oh my darlin' you made that promise as a bride
Do not forsake me oh my darlin' although you're grievin' don't think of leavin'
Now that I need you by my side
Wait along wait along wait along wait along
