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

cho: Beautiful, beautiful brown eyes,
Beautiful, beautiful brown eyes,
Beautiful, beautiful brown eyes,
I'll never love blue eyes again .

"Seven long years l've been married,
l wish l 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,
"l'll never get drunk any more."
(or I'll never see brown eyes no more)

From Ozark Folksongs, Randolph
