Song Length 4:55 Genre Country - Traditional



I know I am plain
My dresses are simple
My hair it is straight, Not a wave, nor a curl
And my eyes are not strong
But I can see clearly
Love ain't a train that is bound for this girl

At 10 I got glasses, the lenses were thick
My friends fell away, I walked home all alone.
The doctor, he told me he never had seen
A girl as farsighted as my mama's own.

When you're nearsighted
You see things up close
The details, the fine points, the sweet day-to-day
When you're farsighted,
You see what's coming
from far, far away....

You said I was pretty, you danced me around
you said you would drive me to town for the show
Well, please don't feel sorry for promises broken
I never expected to go.

When you're nearsighted
You see things up close
A lover, a flower, a filligreed ring
When you're farsighted, you see what's coming
A far better thing...

I pick up my basket, I walk to the market
I get what I need, I go home to my chair.
Please do not warn me of dangers ahead
My eyes don't deceive me, no, they wouldn't dare.

When you're nearsighted....
