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 12-0-3
In an hour or two I would whisper "I do"
To my beautiful ebony eyes

(spoken)
The plane was way overdue so I went inside
To the airlines desk and I said "sir I wonder why
Flight 12-0-3 is so late"
He said "oh they probably took off late or they may
Have run into turbulant weather and had to alter their course"
I went back outside and I waited at the gate
And 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)
Then came the announcement over the loud speaker
"Would those having relatives or friends on flight number 12-0-3
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 recognise
She'll smile at me and I know she will be
My beautiful ebony eyes
