Waylon Jennings – Grey Eyes You Know lyrics

Verse 1:
That cold north wind is blowin', grey eyes you know
The years are quickly going, grey eyes you know
And the good life I promised you so long ago
Is dead but for the dreaming, grey eyes you know

Verse 2:
We never had much money, grey eyes you know
More rainy days than sunny, grey eyes you know
And life has been a long hard row to hoe
But you stuck right by me smiling, grey eyes you know

Hard times took the blue from your eyes
Leaving them grey,as the winter skies

Verse 3:
We had our time I must walk away
Leave you here beneath this mound of clay
And I feel so empty as I turn to go
Would my heart lie there beside you, grey eyes you know My heart lies there beside you, grey eyes you know
