The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Beautiful, Beautiful Brown Eyes

Beautiful, beautiful 4 brown eyes
1 Beautiful, beautiful 5 brown eyes
1 Beautiful, beautiful 4 brown eyes
I'll 5 never love blue eyes a 1 gain

Willie, oh Willie, I love you
Love you with all my heart
Tomorrow we might have been married
But liquor has kept us apart

Seven long years I've been married
I wish I was single again
A woman never knows of her troubles
Until she has married a man

Down to the barroom he staggered
Staggered and fell at the door
The last words that he ever uttered
"I'll never get drunk any more."
