Merritt Lyr Req: Emma (Jonathan Edwards) (8) Lyr Req: Emma by J. Edwards 16 Dec 02


Hi Folk-Folks,

Found pieces of these lyrics lying around on dusty shelves in my tired, middle-aged brain; but I can't quite put it all together. It's from Jonathan Edwards' self-titled 1971(?) release. Chords are pretty straight-forward.

Here's what I have so far:

EMMA

The first time I saw Emma
She ?____? above me in a dream (?)
Da, da, da, da, da-da-da (?)
And off we flew it seemed
Like an airplane
Moving up and down
Through the country town
Passing over the city so slow, slowly

Emma comes to see me
About eight o'clock each night
And she throws her arms around me
And off we go in flight
Like an airplane
Moving up and down
Through the country town
Passing over the city so slow, slowly

BRIDGE: But Emma's made, Emma's made for night
And I can't wait
My dinner's served by half past eight
And I can't wait, can't wait for night

The last time I saw Emma
She made me love her till I died
And we ?____? ?_____? fields ?_______?
Searching open sky
For an airplane
Moving up and down
Through the country town
Passing over the city so slow, slowly

BRIDGE/END

*******

- Merritt
