On a weekend pass I wouldn't have had time

To get home and marry that baby of mine

So I went to the chaplain and he authorized

Me to send for my ebony eyes

My ebony eyes was coming to me

From out of the skies on Flight 1203

In an hour or two I would whisper I do

To my beautiful ebony eyes

The plane was way overdue

So I went inside to the airlines desk

And I said Sir I wonder why 1203 is so late

He said Aww they probably took off late or they

May have run into some turbulent weather

And had to alter their course

I went back outside and I waited at the gate

And I watched the beacon light from the control tower

As it whipped through the dark ebony skies

as If it were searching for

My ebony eyes

And then came the announcement over the loudspeaker

Would those having relatives

Or friends on flight number 1203

Please report to the chapel across the street at once

Then I felt a burning break deep inside

And I knew the heavenly ebony skies

Had taken my life's most wonderful prize

My beautiful ebony eyes

If I ever get to heaven I'll bet

The first angel I'll recognize

She'll smile at me and I know she will be

My beautiful ebony eyes
