All right,

There’s a lady I know,
And I'm lucky to say,
She's a woman in everyway,
Cause she weeps just like a widow,
When her hate is clouding up my day.

When she touches my eyes,
She takes my heart in here hand,
If you'd knew that child you'd plainly see,
When she laughs I realize,
I'm in love with my sweet Emily

Woo, she knows how to boogie,
Like a honky tonk queen,
But she tell me what is down and real

She's a dancin' delight,
And to make me feel good,
If I need forgiven, lord I’d know she would

Just one in the world,
And it's a natural thing,
She can put right back on the right track.
Oh, she can leave me on my knee.
You know 'I’m talkin' 'bout my sweet Emily.

Oh now, you can't guess the reason
For the way that I've been
But her love can always tell you were your heart is.

No way to explain,
With whole world in chains
But know that girl will always remain the same.

What more can I say
No words can describe
A feeling I have inside

For if you look in my eyes
You'll know I love my sweet Emily


If you look in my eyes
You'll know I love my sweet Emily

Take a time

If you look in my eyes
You'll know I love my sweet Emily
