Sweet Amelia Lyrics

Oh, Amelia
My southern woman
Never had a chance to say goodbye

I met her back in sixty-three, she was such a mystery
She was there on Barron Street, down in New Orleans
So wild but yet so tame, she could calm a hurricane
She was only seventeen and Amelia was her name

Oh, when I took her for a ride, she got close by my side
And when I looked into her eye, Amelia kept me hypnotized
But in my heart she fell, oh, I got pulled into her spell
I can still see her there with the flowers in her hair

Oh Amelia, my Southern woman
I can still feel you every time I close my eyes
Sweet Amelia, where did you run to?
We never had a chance to say goodbye

I remember making love underneath the stars above
I can feel the summer breeze up in magnolia trees
That night in the Southern land, the girl, she took me by the hand
And I was weak as a little lamb but I became a man

Love was pumping through my veins, her lips were sweet like sugarcane
We rode all night in the rain 'cross the Lake Poncetrain
She had a heart as fine as fire, burning innocent desire
I can still see her there with flowers in her hair

Oh, Amelia, my Southern woman
I can still feel you, every time I close my eyes
Sweet Amelia, where did you run to?
We never had a chance to say goodbye

Just like a shooting star, she vanished in the night
But I'll always remember her lips so warm and tender
In my heart she'll always shine so bright
Sweet Amelia, if I could just see her one more time

Oh Amelia, my Southern woman
I can still feel you every time I close my eyes
Sweet Amelia, where did you run to?
We never had a chance to say goodbye

Oh Amelia, my Southern woman
I can still feel you every time I close my eyes
Sweet Amelia, where did you run to?
We never had a chance to say goodbye

Oh Amelia, my Southern woman
I can still feel you every time I close my eyes
Sweet Amelia, where did you run to?
We never had a chance to say goodbye

Oh Amelia, my Southern woman
I can still feel you
