  • Don't know when I've been so blue
    Don't know what's come over you
    You've found someone new and
    Don't it make my brown eyes blue

    I'll be fine when you're gone
    I'll just cry all night long
    Say it isn't true and
    Don't it make my brown eyes blue

    Tell me no secrets, tell me some lies
    Give me no reasons, give me alibies
    Tell me you love me and don't let me cry
    Say anything but don't say goodbye

    I didn't mean to treat you bad
    Didn't know just what I had
    But honey now I do
    And don't it make my brown eyes
    Don't it make my brown eyes
    Don't it make my brown eyes blue Writer/s: Richard C Leigh
