the oak ridge boys – emmylou lyrics

Loading...

oh ho, emmylou. emmylou
what in the world can i do?
spend my life just trying to get close to you
heaven is a girl named emmylou

trailed you out to houston
to a hotel downtown
followed you down the corridor
but you never turned around
but one of your big old bodyguards
suggested that i leave
he didn’t seem to appreciate
the patch upon my sleeve
that read
oh. ho, emmylou. emmylou
just a fan who’s in love with you
spend most of my time trying to talk to you
heaven is a girl named emmylou

i heard you went to la
so i hitched myself a ride
california dreaming of me
right there by your side
out at the palomino club
i watched you all night long
until you looked right at me
in the words of your last song
i asked you for your guitar pick
that’s all that i could say
then the limo did appear
and took the queen away

oh ho, emmylou. emmylou
what in the world can i do?
spend my life just trying to get close to you
heaven is a girl named emmylou
well i love olivia’s eyes
and ronstadt‘s really nice
but heaven is a girl named emmylou
