BILLY GILMAN


Elisabeth Lyrics

Namesake to Elisabeth
Her daddy's pride and joy
Baptized in her mama's tears
Soon after she was born

'Cause the doctor said she'd never live
To see her sweet sixteen
It's a miracle she beat those odds
And there's still no promise

She will see tomorrow
It makes me wonder
How life can give someone so much
And take so much away

Oh, Elisabeth
You're a teacher, you're a saint
And I'm so glad you came to us

Elisabeth
You make the world a better place
With the kindness of your smile and your love
And your beauty will live on and on Elisabeth
Elisabeth

She might not ever marry
Or hold a baby of her own
Things we all take for granted
Are the things she may never know

But she believes there's always hope
And that's all she really has
So, she walks through life with passion
And with dignity and class

And when she cries, she cries in silence
But never for herself
She cries for everybody else, everybody else

Oh, Elisabeth
You're a teacher you're a saint
And I'm so glad you came to us

Elisabeth, you make the world a better place
With the kindness of your smile and your love
And your beauty will live on and on
I'm so glad you came to us

Elisabeth, you make the world a better place
With the kindness of your smile and your love
And your beauty will live on and on
