Songs of days gone by
by Alice McKiel

Here are a few songs Grandma used to sing while she knitted me a scarf or mittens
           

DON'T IT MAKE MY BROWN EYES BLUE

Don't know when I've been so blue
Don't know what's come over you
You've found someone new
And don't it make my brown eyes blue
Don't it make my brown eyes blue.

Tell me no secrets - tell me no lies
Give me no reasons - give me no alibis
Tell me you love me and don't let me cry
Say anything - but don't say Good- by

I didn't mean to treat you bad,
Didn't know just what I had,
But Honey, now I do
And don't it make my brown eyes blue
Don't it make my brown eyes blue.
