Looks Good to Tommy
© 2008
She was a sickly child, but she had a look about her that was free and wild
Had the greenest eyes and coal-black hair, Same old brown dress she always used to wear.

The other kids teased her, used to call her Plain-Jane, But Tommy was different, he never called her any names.
He said she was the one, He?d spend his lovin? years, Friends told him he was crazy, But Tommy didn?t care

?Cause she sure looked good to Tommy. He could see a rainbow in her eyes.
Oh, she sure looked good to Tommy. He?ll spend his life with her in paradise.

They bought an old farm, day after high school. Forty acres and an old house and a broken-down mule.
Found a preacher man next day, he said, ?Kids, I wish you luck.
?Cause life is pretty hard when you make your living in the dirt.?

But it sure looked good to Tommy. He could see a rain cloud in the sky
Oh, it sure looked good to Tommy. They?d spend their lives right here in paradise.


Then one day the baby came. Doctor said, ?it?s way too early . ..
?You know he looks alright right now but don?t you know that he?s gonna be a sickly child.?

But he sure looked good to Tommy. He could see a rainbow in his eyes.
Oh, he sure looked good to Tommy. He?d spend his life with them in paradise.

Forty years gone by, the baby?s all grown. Got 80 acres and a good wife, three children of his own
Janie?s sittin? on the front porch feelin? poorly, turnin? gray.
The doctor doesn?t think she?s gonna make another day.

?But she sure looks good to Tommy. He still sees a rainbow in her eyes.
Oh, she sure looks good to Tommy. He?s spent his life with her in paradise.
Yes, it all looks good to Tommy. He can see that rainbow in the sky.
Oh, it all looks good to Tommy. They?ll spend their forever together in paradise.
