[Chorus:]
F                           C     F                          C
Those brown eyes I loved so well. Those brown eyes I long to see.
C                          G                                  C
How I long for those brown eyes. Strangers they have grown to be.


C               G                              C
Just a year ago today, when my brown eyes went away
C                      G                                      C
Up in heaven I long to be, where a brown-eyed angel waits for me

[Chorus]

C                              G                                     
Last night I passed her on the street, I bowed my head 'cause I could not

speak
C                      G                                 C  
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.


C                            G                                    C
One evening when the sun was low my brown eyes whispered, "I must go."
C                        G                                     C
Not one second would she wait. She kissed my cheek and left my gate.

[Chorus:]
F                           C     F                          C
Those brown eyes I loved so well. Those brown eyes I long to see.
C                          G                                  C
How I long for those brown eyes. Strangers they have grown to be.

C                          G                                       C
One night I met her on the street. I tipped my hat but I could not speak.
C                      G                                 C
Another man was by her side. Soon I thought she'd be his bride.

[Chorus]

C                     G                                  C
'Twas just a year ago today, they laid my own brown eyes away.
C                         G                                C
Six long years for me she cried. It was her brother by her side.

[Chorus]
