Sweet Lady Leslie

By Jeff Shumate © 2010

Since I met my lady, my life is not the same,

Oh dear Lord I pray to you, thank you for her name,

But if there were a hell on earth; I think I've felt its flame,

I say to my sweet Leslie, oh won't you keep my name,

Cause life without my lady, just wouldn't be the same,

***

I lay alone in bed one night, knowing I'm to blame,

And mustered all the love I had and started calling out her name,

Oh sweet lady Leslie, oh will you keep my name,

Cause if there is a hell on earth I think I've felt it's flame,

***

Now where's my Lady Leslie, I don't really know,

But on my knees I pray to God, please don't let her go,

Oh sweet lady Leslie, will you keep my name,

Cause if there is a hell on earth I think I've felt it's flame,

***

The day had come, and it was time, she had to make a choice,

So she listened closely to her heart, and there she heard my voice,

Oh sweet lady Leslie, will you keep my name,

Cause life without my lady, just wouldn't be the same,

And if there is a hell on earth I think I've felt its flame,

***

Now I say to you dear lady, my love is yours to claim,

Right now it doesn't matter, there ain't know time for blame,

Cause here on earth I saw heaven, the first time I saw your face,

We are just a man and woman; we're going to make mistakes,

***

So listen closely to your heart, cause I'm there calling out your name,

Baby here on earth you're my heaven, my love is yours to claim,

So lady look into your heart, and see me calling out your name,

I caught a glimpse of heaven; our hearts were dancing in the rain

***

Cause since I met my lady, my love is hers to claim,

I love my lady Leslie, since her my life is not the same,

Oh dear Lord I pray to you, thank you for her name,

Let's get back to heaven, where our hearts go dancing in the rain!

***

I love you lady Leslie…

My life is not the same…
