  • You left me and you went away
    You said you'd be back and just that day
    You've broken your promise and you left me here alone
    I don't know why you did dear, but I do know that you're gone

    I'm walking the floor over you
    I can't sleep a wink that is true
    I'm hoping and I'm praying as my heart breaks right in two
    Walking the floor over you

    Now darling you know I love you well
    I love you more than I can ever tell
    I thought that you loved me and always would be mine
    But you went and left me here with troubles on my mind

    I'm walking the floor over you
    I can't sleep a wink that is true
    I'm hoping and I'm praying as my heart breaks right in two
    Walking the floor over you

    Now someday you may be lonesome too
    Walking the floor is good for you
    Just keep right on walking and it won't hurt you to cry
    Remember that I love you and I will the day I die

    I'm walking the floor over you
    I can't sleep a wink that is true
    I'm hoping and I'm praying as my heart breaks in two
    Walking the floor over you Writer/s: ERNEST TUBB, ERNEST, EST. OF TUBB

  • Mark from Byrdstown, TnTubb had a great old rough country voice.Nothing pretty or smooth about it but just about perfect evenso.He and Loretta Lynn did some great songs together.....her crystal clear Kentucky voice and his rough gravely Texas twang just worked somehow.

    Tubb was known for his generous ways in helping other young singers get started...Lynn ,Hank Snow even Hank Williams and Johnny Cash and many others got a helping hand in starting out by this fine man,Ernest Tubb.

    Tubbs "Waltz Across Texas" is his signature song.
