Ebony Eyes

The 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



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 turbulent 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 recognize

She'll smile at me and I know she will be

My beautiful ebony eyes
