Girl With The Sparkling Eyes
She said she was from VA ,
now she’s passing that old state line-
she was headed north to stay w her brother
when I saw her for the very first time.
I Was surprised that shes fresh outta prison
But she came up here to clear her mind,
when I saw her at that camp by the river
I knew I had to make her mine
Every time I see the glitter in the leaves
or a lonesome train shining (or heading) down the line.
I bow my head and pray, and hope again someday
I see the girl w the sparkles eyes - the girl w the sparkles eyes.
she said she was from VA,
but you know I didn’t mind-
was it the moonshine or the lure of the river?
Or the guitar and banjo by my side
