The Lyrics

I’m watching her working in her overalls
In a field where the corn and the day grows tall


Sunrise ~ you’re pretty and fair
Now I’m lost in time peepin’ from my porch chair
Sunrise ~ please pardon my stare
I want to whisk you away to my vast lair


She’s mistaken for a wench - she could please a prince
And she wont ever stray and her words don’t mince


My EyEs ~ have seen an angel
Could I be make believing or just hoping like hell
Her EyEs ~ are soft and gentle
Could I be falling under a good witches love spell


I imagine my first piece of our wedding cake
The sweet frosting on my lips makes my heart to ache


Sunrise ~ you’re taking me there
Now I’m lost in time peepin’ from my porch chair
Surprise ~ you’ve made a new friend
Boy, I’d really love to meet - girl, I wouldn’t know when

I watch as her beauty basks in the growing day
She’s a hard workin’ woman, who’s worth all her pay


My EyEs ~ have seen an angel
Could I be make believing or just hoping like hell
Sunrise ~ you’re pretty and fair
Now I’m lost in time peepin’ from my porch chair
Sunrise ~ you’re taking me there
Now I’m lost in time peepin’ from my porch chair
Surprise ~ you’ve made a new friend
Boy, I’d really love to meet - girl, I wouldn’t know when
