"Sweet Amelia" as written by and Robbie/spalter Nevil....
Oh Amelia, oh Amelia
A southern woman, a 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, oh my woman
I can still feel you, feel you,
Feel you, everytime I close my eyes
Sweet Amelia, sweet Amelia
Where did you run to
We never had a chance to say goodbye
Never heard her 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 light,
The girl she took me by the hand
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 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, oh Amelia
A southern woman, a southern woman
I can still feel you,
Everytime I close my eyes
Sweet Amelia, sweet Amelia
Where did you run to, where'd you run to
We never had a chance to say goodbye
Never want to say goodbye

Just like a shooting star,
She vanished in the night
But I'll always remember
Her lips so warm and tender
And 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
A southern woman,
I can still feel you, oh I can feel you,
Everytime I close my eyes, close my eyes
Sweet Amelia, sweet Amelia
Where did you run to
We never had a chance to say goodbye
(Never, never, never, never never say goodbye)

Oh Amelia, oh Amelia
A southern woman, a southern woman
I can still feel you,
Everytime I close my eyes
Sweet Amelia, sweet Amelia
Where did you run to
We never had a chance to say goodbye

Oh Amelia, a southern woman,
A southern woman
I can still feel you,
Everytime I close my eyes,
From the bottom of my heart
Sweet Amelia, sweet Amelia,
Where did you run to
Where did you run to
We never had a chance to say goodbye
