Emily Harper-Mark Wills
Submitted by: anonymous

Intro: F F Bb C F F Bb

F Bb F
Emily sat right next to me
F Bb F
5 days a week in the same bus seat
Bb C
And for a girl, she was pretty cool
F Bb F
She wore an old ball cap; hated lace
F Bb F
She played a mean shortstop and second base
Bb C
Never missed a day of Sunday school
Bb F
And I never told a soul back then
Bb C
But Emily Harper was my best friend

Chorus:
F Bb C
We carved our names on an old oak limb
F Bb C
On the bank of the tree where we used to swim
F Bb C
A farmer?s son and a preacher?s only daughter
F Bb C
We ran barefoot through the garden gate
F Bb C
All afternoon we laughed and played
F Bb F
Till the sun went down on me and Emily Harper

F Bb F
About the time I turned 16
F Bb F
I noticed Emily?s eyes were green
Bb C
And how they shine when I make her laugh
F Bb F
I liked it when her hair was down,
F Bb F
I hated other guys around
Bb C
I played it cool but I had it made
Bb F
Lord, her daddy had a fit
Bb C
When he caught me stealin? my first kiss

Chorus:
F Bb C
We carved a heart on that old oak limb
F Bb C
On the bank of the tree where we used to swim
F Bb C
A farmer?s son and a preacher?s only daughter
F Bb C
We used to sneak off in my daddy?s car
F Bb C
Sit on the hood and count the stars
F Bb F
Till the sun came up on me and Emily Harper

Bridge:
Bb C F
It all seems just like yesterday
Bb F C
We grew up but some things never change

Chorus:
F Bb C
We still hold hands by that old oak limb
F Bb C
On the bank of the tree where we used to swim
F Bb C
A farmer?s son and a preacher?s only daughter
F Bb C
She sure did make a lovely bride
F Bb C
We vowed to grow on side by side
F Bb F
Till the sun goes down on me and Emily Harper
F F Bb C 3X F
Emily Harper, me and Emily Harper
