Song Description

Girl leaves for more exciting times in the city, leaving her lover behind. He initially laments and grieves her departure but then gets on with his life.

Story Behind the Song

Originally written about a girl I knew in NYC named Emily after I joined the Army and she moved on with her life.

Lyrics

Emma Lee

Well, she went away and the sky turned gray
And I buried my heart in the ground.
And I don?t know when the sun?ll shine again,
Emma Lee when will you come around?

Chorus
?Cause I loved you since I met you
And I held you oh so tight.
And I think about your tender kisses
Every sleepless night

Well, I can still see her face, tho? she left not a trace
Just a love burnin? deep in my soul.
And she?s still got a part of my poor broken heart
Emma Lee give me back what you stole.

Chorus
?Cause I loved you since I met you
And I held you oh so tight.
And I think about your tender kisses
Every sleepless night

Musical Break

Well, it?s a Saturday night and the moon?s shinin? bright
And I?m sure that you?re out on the town.
You?re not the only one who?s been out havin? fun
Emma Lee don?t ya bother comin? round.

Chorus
?Cause I loved you since I met you
And I held you oh so tight.
And I think about your tender kisses
Every sleepless night
