It's been ten long and lonely years since I've been to my hometown
I saw fame and fortune which I finally found
Everyone at home may know me and they say that I'm a big man
A hometown boy that made good and he's back home again
But there's a face in my mem'ry that's stands out from all the rest
A face of someone special the girl I still love best
Well I asked my mom about Jeannie she said she married yesterday
Please don't try to see her son it had to be this way
Then my eyes fill with tears as I turn back the years
To a love I once had when she was mine
Jeannie Norman was her name and I'd give up all my fame
Just to hold Jeannie close one more time
Then my eyes fill with tears...
Just to hold Jeannie close one more time
