[Chorus:]
G D G DThose brown eyes I loved so well. Those brown eyes I long to see.
D A DHow I long for those brown eyes. Strangers they have grown to be.
D A DJust a year ago today, when my brown eyes went away
D A DUp in heaven I long to be, where a brown-eyed angel waits for me
[Chorus]
D A Last night I passed her on the street, I bowed my head 'cause I could not
Dspeak
D A D Another man was at her side, soon I thought she'd be his bride.
[Chorus] Other versions of the song have slightly different lyrics, as stated below.
D A DOne evening when the sun was low my brown eyes whispered, "I must go."
D A DNot one second would she wait. She kissed my cheek and left my gate.
[Chorus:]
G D G DThose brown eyes I loved so well. Those brown eyes I long to see.
D A DHow I long for those brown eyes. Strangers they have grown to be.
D A DOne night I met her on the street. I tipped my hat but I could not speak.
D A DAnother man was by her side. Soon I thought she'd be his bride.
[Chorus]
D A D'Twas just a year ago today, they laid my own brown eyes away.
D A DSix long years for me she cried. It was her brother by her side.
[Chorus]
