Dolly Parton Green Eyed Boy Lyrics

I'm filled with a sense of wonder from the love I shared with a green eyed boy
Lips as sweet as mountain honey a body warm as homemade wine
But he had no dreams and no means for money but he had me just anytime

Take me back if just in memory and fill my cup again with joy
The fire still burns in the old rock chimney
And I still burn for that green eyed boy

Now he was pretty with chiseled features like the movie stars in the magazines
My first love and the son of a preacher I fantasized he was James Dean
But the world outside kept pulling at me offered me fame respect and gold
Designer clothes and a fancy mansion expensive cars so I chose those

Take me back if just in memory...
Take me back if just in memory...

Ooh how I love that green eyed boy
Ooh and I still miss that green eyed boy

Do you think about me when the nights are long and cold
Do you ever miss me do you my green eyed boy
