Ebony Eyes 
Recorded by The Everly Brothers
written by John D. Loudermilk
[3/4 time]

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
C G7 C
Me to send for my ebony eyes

My ebony eyes was coming to me
F C G7
From out of the skies on flight twelve o three
In an hour or two I would whisper I do
C G7 C
To my beautiful ebony eyes

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."

Then I felt a burning break deep inside
And I knew the heavenly ebony skies
Had taken my life's most wonderful prize
C G7 C C7
My beautiful ebony eyes

If I ever get to heaven I'll bet
The first angel I'll recognize
She'll smile at me and I know she will be
G7 C
My beautiful ebony eyes
