Black Ace Eyes

from by Grant Campbell




I've waited all my life, I'll wait some more
Tall grass it covers me, right to the top
Help me I come inside, help me I fall
Your arms are stretching out and I'm holding on

I'd buy that fishing boat and I'd sail it so
Laid out like pearl jaws as they drop to the floor
She said I don't appeal well I said oh my
She smiled and walked away, I sat and cried out

That sweet love of mine, oh sweet love of mine you can come on home

I remember the little moments, I remember them well
You sat down on the floorboards and I sat and stared
He'll lie and cut you off, you got black ace eyes
If you lost your heart in song then I'd give you mine

Don't fight for foolish men Annie, don't pull your hair
Don’t you know I love the way you sad when I'm not there
Don’t make light of these chains for I fit my form
When you’re bound and broken down, then I'll take you on

That sweet love of mine, oh sweet love of mine won't you come on home

Oh save my seat on board, I'll be there soon
Just hang a little while until it's all through
The bell rung an hour ago, so put your glasses down
You'll feel much better when the morning comes around

I've waited all my life, so I'll wait some more
The tall grass it covers me, right to the top
There’s no more simpler lines than the ones I sing
I tell my stories here then I fade away
