Story

It was on a Trailways.  She had an English/German dictionary and a very sweet voice.  I had a bottle of Wild Turkey. 

Lyrics

SONG FOR EVA

(for the German girls)

There’s no need to apologize

I saw it all within your eyes

Never did seem real to me

It was just a fantasy

But still sometimes I hear your voice

It lifts me up above the noise

And though I know it’s just a dream

It would be so nice just to hear you sing.

 

Evie, won’t you sing one more for me

My eyes are wet and I can hardly see

I’ll try to keep it simple so you can understand

Evie, won’t you sing one more for me.

 

I realize you were all alone

But you were not the only one

And sometimes it’s hard to be

Everything that you want to be

 

Evie, won’t you sing one more for me

My eyes are wet and I can hardly see

Get out your dictionary, look up extraordinary

Oh Evie, won’t you sing one more for me.

 

Yodeladeehoo.

 

I wrote this song for someone

And it might as well be for you.
