Ebony Eyes Recorded by The Everly Brothers written by John D. Loudermilk [3/4 time]
C On a weekend pass I wouldn't have had time G7 To get home and marry that baby of mine C F So I went to the chaplain and he authorized C G7 C Me to send for my ebony eyes
F C My ebony eyes was coming to me F C G7 From out of the skies on flight twelve o three C F In an hour or two I would whisper I do C G7 C 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 1203 is so late. He said oh 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 G7 C my eb-on-y eyes
Then came the announcement over the loudspeaker "would those having relatives or friends on flight number 1203 please report to the chapel across the street at once."
C Then I felt a burning break deep inside G7 And I knew the heavenly ebony skies C F Had taken my life's most wonderful prize C G7 C C7 My beautiful ebony eyes
F C If I ever get to heaven I'll bet F C The first angel I'll recognize F C She'll smile at me and I know she will be G7 C My beautiful ebony eyes
