“How Tired I’ve Been”

Words and music by Andru Bemis

The Lord only knows how tired I’ve been. I’m trying to keep on, but I don’t know when will trouble take my worried mind and let me alone again. The Lord only knows how tired I’ve been

  1. I’m trying to make the most I can of the worn out, run down wretch I am. I tried to tell the doctor but she would not understand, the Lord only knows how troubled I am
  2. Please tell my ma I’ll be home soon, in time to see the poppies bloom. The Lord who knows how tired I’ve been will see me safely home again
