Tex Williams – Pretty In Blue lyrics

The funeral home was empty but for me
And the flowers smelled as sweet as they could be
The candle light threw shadows on the floor
As I kneeled down to caress her cheek once more
Oh Lord she looks pretty in blue
Just as soft as the early morning dew
And every dream I have on earth is sleepin' too
Oh Lord she looks pretty in blue

My lonely heart was countin' in my ears
The silence it was all that I could hear
My sleepin' beauty lay with folded hands
So the world could see her golden weddin' band
Oh Lord she looks pretty in blue...

I have spent the night in silence by her side
And relived each happy moment of our lives
Then the silence was broken with the dawn
God give me some ring to face my life alone
Oh Lord she looks pretty in blue...
