I named you Ann the day you were born

And wished you a better life

Before they took you from my arms

A preacher and his wife

 

I wanted everything for you

All the love I never knew

And I remembered every time I cried

June 16th, 1935

 

You had my mother's eyes bluer than the bluest sky

I wonder do you have your father's smile?

Does your nose freckle like mine when you’re out too long in summertime?

Do you wonder about me, every once in awhile? 

 

I wanted everything for you

All the love I never know

And I remembered every time I cried

June 16th, 1935

 

You're grown and I'm old, do you have daughters, do you have sons?

Do they have those blue sky eyes?

Have you found a love that's true with arms for only you

And a smile that will never say good-bye?

 

I want everything for you

All the love I never knew

And I remember when I cry

June 16th, 1935
