"Sparkling Blue Eyes" lyrics - THE CARTER FAMILY

"Sparkling Blue Eyes"

There's a ramshackle shack down in old Caroline
That's calling me back to that girl of mine
Those two blue eyes that I long to see
She's the girl of my dreams and will always be

Those two blue eyes that sparkle with love
Sent down to me from heaven above
If I had the wings of a beautiful dove
I'd fly away to the one I love

When the whippoorwills call on a hill far away
I'll sing love songs and she will say
My love for you will never die
We bid farewell with a sad goodbye
