One evening when the sun was low my brown eyes whispered, "I must go."
Not one second would she wait.
She kissed my cheek and left my gate.

[Chorus:]
Those brown eyes I loved so well.
Those brown eyes I long to see.
How I long for those brown eyes.
Strangers they have grown to be.

One night I met her on the street.
I tipped my hat but I could not speak.
Another man was by her side.
Soon I thought she'd be his bride.

[Chorus]

'Twas just a year ago today,
They laid my own brown eyes away.
Six long years for me she cried.
It was her brother by her side.

[Chorus]
