I've lived a long life
And now I'm looking back
It's the end of the road
The last stop on the track
And I smile as think of my true love once more
The light of my life
The one I adore

(Chorus)

She... she was the prize
The prettiest girl with the loveliest eyes
She... she was the prize
Shiny black hair and those lovely... lovely brown eyes

I met her one night
At the Harvest Fair dance
I longed for a whisper
I hoped for a glance
Then she turned and she smiled
And I melted away
And I knew I'd be with her 'til my dying day

(Repeat chorus)

We lay on the cliffs and we walked hand in hand
We threw stones in the waves
We drew hearts in the sand
Without warning clouds rolled in and blackened the sun
And when they roled out
My light, she was gone

(Repeat chorus)

I've she'd all my tears
And I've said my good-byes
Now I'll lay myself down
Where my pretty girl lies
And when I awake
I'll be on earth no more
I'll be dancing a jig with the girl adore

(Repeat chorus)

    For me it reminds me of how i feel for two particular women who graced my life: ms patrica suzan west and ms silvia shorley saracco.

    I hope that it will be many years before i hve to sing it for either one of these extraordinary women who have made my life on earth bearable.
