Frankie Laine - High noon
Tekst: Ned Washington / Muziek: Dimitri Tiomkin
(1952)






Do not forsake me, oh my darlin’
On this, our weddin’ 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 a man who hates me
Or lie a coward, a craven coward
Or lie a coward in my grave



Oh, to be torn ’tween love and duty
S’posin’ I lose my fair-haired beauty
Look at that big hand move along
Nearin’ high noon



He made a vow while in state 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, wait along
Wait along, wait along
Wait along, wait along
Wait along
