Eddy Arnold - "I'm Thinking Tonight of My Blue Eyes" lyrics

(A.P.Carter)
Could been better for us both had we never

I am sure love I'll never forget.
In this wide and wicked world had never met

Why the pleasures we both seemed together
Oh, I'm thinking tonight of my blues eyes
Oh, I'm thinking tonight of her only
Who is sailing all over the sea
And I wonder if she ever thinks of me.

--- Instrumental ---
And you said that we never would part
Oh, you told me once dear that you love me

But a link in the chain has been broken
Leaving me with a sad and aching heart.

Oh, I'm thinking tonight of my blues eyes
Who is sailing all over the sea
Oh, I'm thinking tonight of her only
And I wonder if she ever thinks of me.
--- Instrumental ---

When the cold cold grave shall inclose me

Of your heart you have broken last year.
Won't you come dear and shed just one tear
Oh, I'm thinking tonight of my blues eyes
And say to the strangers around you

Who is sailing all over the sea
Oh, I'm thinking tonight of her only
And I wonder if she ever thinks of me...
