The Statler Brothers – Elizabeth lyrics

Oh Elizabeth, I want to see your pretty face
I want to touch your lips, I want to feel your warm embrace
Don’t know if I could ever live my life without you
Oh Elizabeth, I’m sure missing you

I remember when we shared a life together
You gave me strength and love with life that felt brand new
When you’re so far away, I’d have to say I’m feeling blue
Oh Elizabeth, I’m sure missing you

Oh Elizabeth, I long to see your pretty face
I long to touch your lips, I long to feel your warm embrace
Don’t know if I could ever live my life without you
Oh Elizabeth, I’m sure missing you

Well it’s been said before that I’ve caused many heartaches
And I wonder if that was really true
Being all alone feels my heart would surely break
Oh Elizabeth, I hope you understand

Oh Elizabeth, I want to see your pretty face
I want to touch your lips, I want to feel your warm embrace
Don’t know if I could ever live my life without you
Oh Elizabeth, I’m sure missing you

Don’t know if I could ever live my life without you
Oh Elizabeth, I’m sure missing you
Oh Elizabeth
