Brown Eyed Handsome Man
Chuck Berry Lyrics

Arrested on charges of unemployment
He was sitting in the witness stand
The judge's wife called up the district attorney
She said, "free that brown eyed man
If you want your job, you better free that brown eyed man"

Flyin' across the desert in a TWA
I saw a woman walking 'cross the sand
She been walkin' thirty miles en route to Bombay
To meet a brown eyed handsome man
Her destination was a brown eyed handsome man

Way back in history, 3000 years
In fact, ever since the world began
There's been a whole lotta good women sheddin' tear
Over a brown eyed handsome man
It's a lot of trouble with a brown eyed handsome man

Beautiful daughter couldn't make up her mind
Between a doctor and a lawyer man
Her mother told her, "darling, go out and find
Yourself a brown eyed handsome man
Just like your daddy, he's a brown eyed handsome man"

Marlo Venus was a beautiful lass
She had the world in the palm of her hand
She lost both her arms in a wrestling match
To meet a brown eyed handsome man
She fought and won herself a brown eyed handsome man

Two, three the count, with nobody on
He hit a high fly into the stand
Rounded third, he was headed for home
It was a brown eyed handsome man
That won the game, it was a brown eyed handsome man

You know you're cool when Buddy Holly covers YOUR song.

Kev Dean

You know you're cool when every rock band that has ever existed has covered at least one of your songs from the Beatles, Stones, Elvis, AC/DC Iron Maiden everyone that has ever played in a band. Chuck is the King of Rock and roll!!!
