Billy Ray Cyrus - Brown Eyed Girl Lyrics

Hey, where did we go
Days when the rain came
Down in the hollow
Playing a new game
Laughing and a-running, hey, hey
Skipping and a-jumping
In the misty morning fog where
Our, our hearts a-thumping
And you, my brown eyed girl
You, my brown eyed girl

And whatever happened, Tuesday and so slow
Going down to the old mine with a Transistor radio
Standing in the sunlight laughing
Hide behind a rainbows wall
Slipping and a-sliding all along the waterfall
With you, my brown eyed girl
You, my brown eyed girl

Do you remember when we used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah
Just like that
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah
La dee dah

So hard to find my way now that I'm all on my own
Saw you just the other day
My, how you have grown
Cast my memory back there, Lord
Sometime I'm overcome thinking about
Holding Hands in the green grass behind the stadium
With you, my brown eyed girl
Yeah, you, my brown eyed girl

Do you remember when we used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah
Just like that
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah
La dee dah
La dee dah
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah

    I love Van, but I like this version as well. Still gets me bouncing around.

  15. Bob Doerr

    Morrison had his style, but this is more musical and together.

  16. Skylar Smith

    My grams told me this is my song :)

  17. MegaAstroFan18

    I like Billy Ray's version better actually. Like the country style he gives it.

  18. MegaAstroFan18

    @selectyour Like the hundreds of people on YouTube who cover classics? Like the hundred artists who do covers because they want to give the songs a shot.

  19. Lopes Garc

    How I met your mother 4x08

  20. ThePurpleRay

    Common peeps! Chill and enjoy the song, it's a good song no matter who sings it! Don't dishonor a good song!

  21. Gavin Von Em

    Not terrible. Now try "Wichita Lineman"...

  22. selectyour

    Well, maybe not that bad, but you still can't cover a classic :)

  23. selectyour

    How the hell do you cover a classic?! THIS IS SHIT

  24. Warhawk553

    the same song from james taylor is better, but this version is also ok,

  25. Dan Fiebiger

    I'm not in country much, and didn't expect much besides the usual shit-kickin' country sound, but this does a nice job re-capturing the original Van Morrison version, but updating the production value. Nice Job Billy.

  26. haumana420

  44. Sean Hennessy

    @nirvanarocks15 Get real, BRC isn't fit to kiss Van the Man's boots.

  45. Sean Hennessy

  51. Gary Carroll

    @kimberlylevin Orignally by Van Morrison :)

  52. Fimousefimouse

    I can't agree. This man is gorgeous, but his version of this song just doesn't have the feeling behind it. it's a sad effort, and i'm so disappointed, I thought it would be ace!

  53. 22sa5m

  58. chopkins91

    He did better than jimmy buffet but Van Morrison is the best.

  59. 123soccerman

    @kimberlylevin Van Morrison was the original version, and if you are trying to find the best one, i would opt with his

  60. Nick Nellen

  61. SpookyTsuki


  62. dakotahstr

  63. Ian Koeller

    @TaylorSwiftFanLol and everyone that has ever been in a band!! lol!!! Van Morrison is the original songwriter, and singer of this one.

  64. blacktheory


  65. Mizuki Veley

    @WalkinSexMachineSean man..

  66. GioDiLeo

    @lolilovefriday5 HAHAHA i heard that lol but at the time they were still in love lol this vids old haha

  67. Antoine Fleuriot

    Sounds great

    Please see/hear my version of this great song on utube, Antoine Fleuriot

  68. Galeone Christopher

    @kimberlylevin .. seriously? fail.

  69. Travis N

    @Philipa0 Heroin is supposed to be clear, I'm sure everyone that does it loves all of the rat poison and sleeping pills that make it have a nice disgusting brown color. On another note, it's a cover (needless to say, it's not about drugs.. or Billy.) Van Morrison came out with it in 1967. This guy was probably hardly born then, though he's made the song more well known, I Think. Just like Last Kiss by Pearl Jam.

  70. Kahima Himawari

    I`ve heard things like this song being about Van Morrison`s love for drugs because GIRL is used for drugs like cocaine, heroin, and ecstasy, also heroin usually comes BROWN and because "slipping and a sliding", which is in the lyrics, is a description of using a needle for injection. I don`t know what is true, but to me it just seems too cruel to assume that such a wonderful, touching song is about something like that.

  71. Joann Delorme

    Way to go Billy ...Good sound Like very much

  72. Kalina Hill


  73. GioDiLeo

    haha this is about miley or his wife idk

  74. Carmen Peralez

    I love this song, I've been playing it over, and over, and over again, and again:)
    and I love Billy Ray too!

  75. seamus205

    @TaylorSwiftFanLol and reel big fish did a ska cover

  76. Jaqueline Martins

    Am Van's biggest fan but for once the real deal by a male singer. Cassandra Wilson can do it too.

  77. shirley bird

    @browneyedgirl492 very good.

  78. inyour arse

    oh god this is a bad version sorry im not hating its just my opinion !

  79. RecurveNinja

    The damn singing realtor has more of a right to sing this than BRC, BRC is a complete no-talent mooch-tard.

  80. browneyedgirl492

    whoever is singin this song is actually not doing to bad of a job

  81. browneyedgirl492

    whoever is singin this song is actually not doing to bad of a job

  82. JAYLEE169

    @iandropin09 you are correct. like father, like daughter... Van is the MAn on this song...

  83. Paula Mion

    Van Morrison does this

  84. Douglas Tomlow

    well if he sung it..pretty good voice

  85. tooch1995

    reel big fish did a much better ska cover.....but van morrison is fuckin awesome

  86. Camille White

    @kikitikiboom Miley duhh. haha jk idk

  87. Mary DiMarco

    i love it you sing so good

  88. Francine Lucena

    @kimberlylevin the original artist is van morrison but so many people do covers of this songg.

  89. Francine Lucena

    no he doesn't sing this van morrison doess , (:

  90. Class-X

    This is a great version. Too bad about the not talent jealous idiots with poor opinions.

  91. MacAggy

    Great version Billy Ray! Simply great vocal...sounds like you sang for the song and not just to show off your vocal ability like half of the soooooooooooooo boring singers today.

  92. Joi White

    I dont like this version personally. I love Van Morrison and Jimmy Buffett's versions.

  93. Juliana Delvecchio

    @spotty78 at least if ur gonna critize him spell everything right u idiot

  94. TaylorSwiftFanLol

    @kimberlylevin he does... van morrison does... and jimmy buffett does too.

  95. Hedgehog's Right of Passage

    Why wasn't he executed for this drivel? Billy Ray JunkYard

  96. Sam Vorous

    Billy is silly, Suckish and stupid! Van is the Man!!!

  97. Jesus Christ

    hes not as good but i still like it.

  98. Deb Ribalkin

    @vaughan4082 I agree ...why does the achey break need to butcher a great song,,,should just leave the singing to the legends

  99. Deb Ribalkin

    @ vaughan... I completely agree.....why butcher a good thing?? Billy Rae should just go achey break somewhere else and leave the real singing to the legends.

  100. vaughan4082

    @reggie46404 ya thats why i got 5 likes,no its crap van morrision is the only good version forget covers!
