lyrics

Have you read the morning paper, dear?
The latest magazine?
The headline that’s on CNN
It’s about you and me

Are you sick of songs of Texas
Or Memphis, Tennessee?
I’m just a girl from Owensboro
In a grave in Kentucky

Have you felt the peace, my dear,
that comes with morning dew?
Lie with me in eternity,
I’m so in love with you
Have you heard the evening news
or heard our children cry
About the man from Owensboro
who had a roving eye?

We’ve never known a quarrel, dear
A cross word or a fight
I wish with all my heart, true love,
To take back that night

Speechless when you saw me, dear
Coming with the knife
I’m done with you, dear it’s my turn
Your lawful wedded wife

Have you felt the peace, my dear,
that comes with morning dew?
Lie with me in eternity,
I’m so in love with you
Have you heard the evening news
or heard our children cry
About the man from Owensboro
who had a roving eye?
