Guess I got what I deserve

Kept you waiting there, too long my love

All that time, without a word

Didn't know you'd think, that I'd forget, or I'd regret

The special love I have for you, my Baby Blue

All the days became so long

Did you really think, I'd do you wrong

Dixie, when I let you go

Thought you'd realize, that I would know, I would show

The special love I have for you, my Baby Blue

What can I do, what can I say

Except that I want you by my side

How can I show, you, show me a way

Don't you know, the times I tried

Guess that's all I have to say

Except the feeling just gets stronger, everyday

Just one thing, before I go

Take good care, baby, let me know, let it grow

The special love, you have for me, my Dixie dear

Songwriters: Peter William Ham
