Credence Clearwater Revival – Brown Eyed Girl lyrics

Hey, where did we go
Days when the rains came
Down in the hollow
Playin' a new game
Laughin' and a-runnin', hey, hey
Skippin' and a-jumpin'
In the misty mornin' fog where
Our, our hearts a-thumpin'
And you, my brown eyed girl
You, my brown eyed girl

And whatever happened,
Tuesday and so slow
Goin' down to the old mine
Wit a transistor radio
Standing in the sunlight laughin'
Hidin' behind a rainbow's wall
Slippin' and a-slidin' all along the waterfall
With you, my brown eyed girl
You, my brown eyed girl

Do you remember when we used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la la la de da
Hey, hey
Sha la la la la la la la la la la la la de da
La de da
Mm

So hard to find my way now that I'm on my own
Seen you just the other day
My, how you have grown
Cast my memory back there, Lord
Sometime I'm overcome thinking about
Makin' love in the green grass
Behind the stadium
With you, my brown eyed girl
You, my brown eyed girl

Do you remember when we used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la la la de da
Mm
Sha la la la la la la la la la la la la de da
La de da

(Instrumental)

Oh baby, do you remember
Lyin in the green grass behind the stadium


[This is Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl"]

    If you want a real meaning, brown eyed girl is an acual discription of how things were when I met and fell in love with the only woman I have and ever will love. She was 17, with a body that quite literaly would stop traffic. The face of an innocence angel, but the first thing I saw when I met her, was her beautiful brown eyes. Brown eyed girl is so close it almost seems as though someone was watching our life, and then writing this song. The running and laughing, skipping and jumping. We once saw a rainbow so close and so vivid that she accualy walked around behind it, and I could not see her. Even down to the first made love to her, in the grass behind the old high school stadium. The song was so real and so very, very acurate, it was our song, we lived it. When I hear it now, the memories are so clear, I'm young and in love again. 'thanks for listewning.
