Dolly Parton Jeannie’s Afraid of the Dark Lyrics

sponsored links
Our bedroom almost every night
Her soft little face would be wet from her tears
And her little heart pounding with fright
She'd hold out her arm then she'd climb in beside us
In a small voice we'd hear her remark
Mommie and daddy can I sleep here with you
Cause Jeannie's afraid of the dark

One day in the summer we took some flowers
To place on some old family grave
Jeannie said mommie ain't it dark in the ground
Oh daddy I'd be so afraid
Then she looked up at her daddy and me
And said something that broke both our hearts
She said when I die please don't bury me
Cause Jeannie's afraid of the dark

Jeannie was always afraid of the dark and we never could understand why
Cause we looked after Jeannie with the very best of care
Because Jeannie was our only child
Perhaps it was death that she was so afraid of
Cause it took her one dark stormy night
I think we always knew that we'd never see Jeannie grown
Cause it seemed that she was destined to die
But on Jeannie's grave we've placed en eternal flame
That glows and never loses its spark
And on the darkest night there's always a light
Cause Jeannie's afraid of the dark
Our Jeannie's afraid of the dark
