A Pair Of Brown Eyes

D                                                                     e                            G
One summer's evening drunk as hell I sat there nearly lifeless
      D                                                                    e                  A
An old man in the corner sang where the waterlilies grow
        D                                                       e                                 G
And on the jukebox Johnny sang about a thing called love
D                     e             G                    D
how are you kid and what's your name
G                             e
and what do you know
    D                                                                            e                             G
In blood and death 'neath a screaming sky I sat down on the ground
               D                                                            e                         A
And the arms and legs of other men were scattered all around
  D                                                                                       e                                  G
I cursed and prayed and prayed and cursed and then I prayed some more
                D      e                G           D
And the only thing that I could see
                                       e                        G                 D
Was a pair of brown eyes that was looking at me
                                e                        G                     D
But when we got back labelled parts one to three
                                       e                                G
There was no pair of brown eyes there waiting for me.

            D            e            G              D
And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
                           e            G              D
And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
                           e            G              D
And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
          G                        e
For a pair of brown eyes
          G          A           D
For a pair of brown eyes.

D                                                             e                          G
I looked at him he looked at me all I could do was hate him
           D                                                   e                   A
While Ray and Philomena sang of my elusive dream
  D                                                                       e                                      G
I saw the streams, the rolling hills where his brown eyes were waiting
          D                e          G          D                             G                           e             G           A              D
And I thought about a pair of brown eyes that waited once for me, that waited once for me.
                                                                                e                                    G
So drunk as hell I left the place sometimes crawling sometimes walking
   D                                                                             e                            G
A hungry sound came cross the breeze so I gave the walls a talking
          D                                                      e                          G
And I heard the sounds of long ago from the old canal
               D                   e               G         D                      G                             e
And the birds were whistling in the trees and the wind was gently laughing.
