Brown To Blue (V.Franks/J.Mathis/G.Jones)

We stood there in the courthouse room
So close yet far apart
You had brought your lawyer and I brought
A broken heart
The judge pronounced the words the way
You wanted him to do
He changed your name from Brown to Jones
And mine from Brown to Blue

I couldn't keep my tears from falling
On the courtroom floor
My love they took away
My rights to love you anymore

My world just seemed to stop
While I stood there so close to you
They changed your name from Brown to Jones
And mine from Brown to Blue

The judge forgot to tell me
How I'd live my life alone
What I would do without you
After loving you so long
He didn't seem to care that I am still
In love with you
He changed your name from Brown to Jones
And mine from Brown to Blue.
