Buddy Holly – Brown Eyed Handsome Man lyrics

Arrested on charges of unemployment, he was sitting in the witness stand
The judge's wife called up the district attorney, said, "Free that brown eyed man
You want your job you better free that brown eyed man"
Flying across the desert in a twa, I saw a woman walking across the sand
She been walkin' thirty miles en route to Bombay to reach a brown eyed handsome man
Her destination was a brown eyed handsome man
Way back in history three thousand years, back ever since the world began
There's been a whole lot of good women shedding tears for a brown eyed handsome man
A lot of trouble, was a brown eyed handsome man

The beautiful daughter couldn't make up her mind between a doctor and a lawyer man
Her mother told her darling go out and find yourself a brown eyed handsome man
That's what your daddy is, a brown eyed handsome man
Well, Milo Venus was a beautiful lass, she had the world in the palm of her hand
But she lost both her arms in a wrestling match to win a brown eyed handsome man
She fought and won herself a brown eyed handsome man
Well, two, three the count with nobody on, he hit a high fly into the stand
Rounding third he was headed for home
It was a brown eyed handsome man that won the game, it was a brown eyed handsome man
