Thread Name: Lyr Req: Eyes of Blue? / Smilin' Through (Penn)
Subject: Eyes of Blue??
Long ago there was someone I knew who sang a song about a couple who were getting on in years. She had "eyes of blue". He, the singer, speaks of how her hair has turned gray or silver and how his has too. I think there was something in it about a garden gate as well. It sounds like a song which may have been popular in the early part of this century and sounded to me like it might be from the British Isles (I can't honestly say whether English, Irish, Scottish but it didn't sound like it was native to the USA). I would like to find the lyrics. The title as listed in the thread heading may not be correct.
