Here's another one about blue eyes:

I'M THINKING TONIGHT OF MY BLUE EYES

As recorded by Gene Autry, 1942
Written by A.P. Carter

G                            C
Would be better for us had we never
       D7                     G   
In this wide, wicked world ever met.
                                 C
For the pleasures we've both seen together,
      D7                     G
I am sure love I'll never forget.

Chorus 1:
Oh, I'm thinking tonight of my blue eyes,
Who is sailing far over the sea.
Oh, I'm thinking tonight of my blue eyes,
And I wonder if she ever thinks of me?

Verse 2:
Oh you told me one time that you loved me,
And you promised that we'd never part.
But a link in the chain has been broken
Leaves me now with a sad and aching heart.

Chorus 2:
Oh I'm thinking tonight of my blue eyes,
Who is waiting far over the sea.
Oh I'm thinking tonight of her only,
And I wonder if she ever thinks of me?

Verse 3:
When in time the cold grey should enclose me,
Will you come dear and shed just one tear?
Will you say to the strangers around you,
A poor heart you've broken lies here?

Repeat Chorus 2
