There's a lady I know, and I'm lucky to say,
She's a woman in every way.
Cuz she weeps just like a widow
When the hate is cloudin' up my day

When she touches my eyes,
She takes my heart in her hand
If you knew that child you'd plainly see
When she laughs I realize
I'm in love with my sweet Emily

Well she knows how too boogie
Like a honky tonk queen
But she tells me what is jive and what is real
She's a dancin' delight and she makes me feel good
If I need forgiven lord I know she would

There's just one in this world and
It's a natural fact
She can put me right back
On the right track
She keeps me company ya know I'm talkin'
About my sweet Emily

I can't give a reason for the way that I feel
But love can always tell you where your heart is
There's no way to explain
With the whole world in change
But I know that girl will always remain the same

What more can I say, no words can describe
This feelin' that I have inside
But if you look in my eyes
You'll know I love my
Sweet Emily

But if you look in my eyes
You'll know I love my
Sweet Emily
