I wonder when I'm gonna see my Madeleine.
Hey, Maddy. Where have you been?

Well, it's been one whole week since I lost my girl.
She's my raison d'etre, she's my whole world.
But she left me hanging down here all alone,
So I'm gnawing my anguish like a dog with a bone.

I wonder when I'm gonna see my Madeleine.
Hey, Maddy. Where have you been?

Well, I talked her into stayin' one more night.
She just shrugged her shoulders, didn't put up a fight.
But when morning came, she was gone at first light.
Hey, Maddy. Where have you been?

I wonder when I'm gonna see my Madeleine.
Hey, Maddy. Where have you been?

Well, I don't mind telling you, I'm not missing you at all.
You left me spinnin' round and I'm not about to take that fall.
But if you come back begging, you can do it by yourself,
'Cause I've packed all of my bags, put my heart up on a shelf.

Hey, Maddy. Where have you been?
Hey, Maddy. Where have you been?
It's weird in print. When it's sung, the phrasing is way more comprehensible. Just hum when you read it, you'll grab that angst and wring from it whatever you want. I promise.

I read over it once like your standard poem, then went back and hummed it while I read it a second time. The melody for me naturally morphed into a sad bluegrass-esque lament. Very well done!

I like this a lot. It's very old timey.

Thanks. I've written music for it, but DA isn't very music-friendly. The words themselves will have to suffice. =)
