  • Oh Elizabeth I long to see your pretty Face
    I long to touch your Lips, I long to feel your warm embrace
    Don't know if I could ever live my Life without you
    Oh Elizabeth I'm sure missing you

    I Remember when we shared a Life together
    You gave me strength and love, and life that felt brand new
    You so far away I have to say I'm feeling blue
    Oh Elizabeth I'm sure missing you

    Oh Elizabeth I long to see your pretty Face
    I long to touch your Lips, I long to feel your warm embrace
    Don't know if I could ever live my Life without you
    Oh Elizabeth I'm sure missing you

    Well it's been said before that I've caused many heartaches
    And I Wonder if that parts really true
    Be it right or wrong it feels my heart will surley break
    Oh Elizabeth I hope you understand

    Oh Elizabeth I long to see your pretty Face
    I long to touch your Lips, I long to feel your warm embrace
    Don't know if I could ever live my Life without you
    Oh Elizabeth I'm sure missing you

    Don't know if I could ever live my Life without you
    Oh Elizabeth I'm sure missing you

  • Patricia from IndianaI love this song, but cried eveytime I listened to it, thinking of my Mother who was. ELizabeth. Thanks for writing it Jimmy. Love the Statlers always.
  • Ginny White from Bay AreaLove this song. I first herd it years ago, but it took on a new meaning about 25, 26 years ago, when my second niece was supposed to be born. Her first name was Elizabeth. Sadly she died in the womb, a few days before she was to have been born. I have often wondered through the years, what she would have been like or what she would be doing. can't wait to meet her in heaven. wish I could tell Jimmy THANKS for this song, and for Name On A Wall.
