To be alone with you
Just you an' me
Now won't you tell me true
Ain't that the way it oughta be
To hold each other tight
The whole night thru
Everything is always right
When i'm alone with you.

To be alone with you
At the close of the day
With only you in view
While evening slips away
It only goes to show
That while life's pleasures be few
The only one i know
Is when i'm alone with you.

They say the night time is the right time
To be with the one you love
Too many thoughts get in the way in the day
You're always what i'm thinkin' of   /dreamin' of/
I wish the night was here
Bringin' me all of your charms
When only you are near
To hold me in your arms

I always thank the lord
When my working day's thru
I get my sweet reward
To be alone you you.

To Be Alone With You 2


17 May 1970
THE BOOTLEG SERIES VOL. 15: TRAVELIN' THRU 1967-1969 #2

  Earl Scruggs sessions, Carmel NY - 17.may.1970  

To be alone with you
At the close of the day
When only you are near
While evening slips away
It only goes to show
While life's pleasures be few
The only one i know
Is when i'm alone with you.

To be alone with you
At the close of the day
With only you in view
While evening slips away
It only goes to show
That while life's pleasures be few
The only one i know
Is when i'm alone with you.

They say the night time is the right time
To be with the one you love
Too many things get well in the day
But you're always what i'm thinkin' of
I wish the night was here
To hold you in my arms
When only you are near
Bringin' me with your charms

I let you roll atop (?)
At the close of the day
When only you are here
To move (?) the night away.

To Be Alone With You 3


April/May 2021
 SHADOW KINGDOM [july 18, 2021]

Shadow Kingdom recording sessions, Santa Monica CA - May 2021 

To be alone with you, just you an' I
Under the moon Ōneath the star-spangled sky
I know youÕre alive and I am too
My own desire is to be alone with you

To be alone with you even for just an hour
In a castle high, in an ivory tower
Some people donÕt get it, they just donÕt have a clue
They wouldn't know what itÕs like, to be alone with you

They say the night time is the right time
To hold each other tight
All our wordly cares will disappear
And everything will come out right

I wish the night was here, make me scream and shout
IÕd fall into your arms, IÕll let it all hang out
IÕll hound you to death, thatÕs just what'll I do
I wonÕt sleep a wink, till IÕm alone with you

IÕm collectin' my things in a pattern
Movin' from place to place
Steppin' out in the dark night
Steppin' out into space

What happened to me darling? What was it you saw?
Did I kill somebody? Did I escape the law?
My heartÕs in my mouth, my eyes are still blue
My mortal bliss is to be alone with you
My mortal bliss is to be alone with you.
