Emmaline

Emmaline, Emmline.
She took my heart and left me here to bleed
She was the finest lookin' woman this poor boy had ever seen
Bring back my heart and heal me Emmeline

I met her in a honky-tonk across the Georgia line
She said she was lonely, would I like to spend some time
We shared a tender moment, lasted till the break of dawn
I turned around next mornin' and that woman, she was gone

Emmaline, Emmaline.
She took my heart and left me here to bleed
I fell in love first kiss and now I'm begggin' on my knees
Bring back my heart and heal me Emmaline

All my friends say that I'm crazy, comin' back here every night.
9:30 rolls around and I'll be sittin', getting' tight
That broken heart should heal, they say, in just a drink or three
Aw, y'know that it ain't broken, 'cause she took the whole darned thing

Emmaline, Emmline.
She took my heart and left me here to bleed
She was the finest lookin' woman this poor boy had ever seen
Bring back my heart and heal me Emmaline

Emmaline, Emmline.
She took my heart and left me here to bleed
She walked in at 9:30, it was gone by 10:15
Bring back my heart and heal me Emmaline
I fell in love first kiss and now I'm beggin' on my knees
Bring back my heart and heal me Emmaline

Bring back my heart and heal me Emmaline
