sight for sore eyes lyrics – waylon jennings

“sight for sore eyes”
(performed with jessi colter)

i knew the day i met you
where i stood
there was no way that you
would stay for good
but when you left
i just kept hanging in
praying that i see you
once again
and you sure are a sight
for sore eyes
just seeing you again is worth
every tear i cried
oh don’t keep me waiting
come inside
you sure are a sight
for sore eyes

just take me in your arms
and don’t explain
and kiss away the teardrops
and the pain
don’t feel that theirs a thing
you need to say
your here and that’s
what matters anyway

you sure are a sight
for sore eyes
just seeing you again is worth
every tear i cried
oh don’t keep me waiting
come inside
you sure are a sight
for sore eyes
you sure are a sight
for sore eyes
