Ebony Eyes - Everly Brothers ***


On a weekend pass I wouldn’t have had time
To get home and marry that baby of mine
So I went to the chaplain and he authorized
Me to send for my ebony eyes

My ebony eyes was coming to me
From out of the skies on Flight 12-03
In an hour or two I would whisper I do
To my beautiful ebony eyes

The plane was way overdue, so I went inside to the airlines desk and I said Sir
I wonder why 12-03 is so late He said Aww, they probably took off late
Or they may have run into some turbulent weather and had to alter their course
I went back outside and I waited at the gate and I watched the beacon light from the
control tower as it whipped through the dark ebony skies as if it were searching for
(my ebony eyes) And then came the announcement over the loudspeaker
Would those having relatives or friends on flight number 12-03 please report to the
chapel across the street at once

Then I felt a burning break deep inside
And I knew the heavenly ebony skies
Had taken my life’s most wonderful prize
My beautiful ebony eyes

If I ever get to heaven I’ll bet
The first angel I’ll recognize
She’ll smile at me and I know she will be
My beautiful ebony eyes
