"Song For Eva Mae" as written by and Francis Edward Turner....
Eva Mae,
I remember the date you were born, It was the summer.
Your mum and dad called me up to say how proud, they were.
Voices ringing with the love of a new born child.
Light shining in their eyes, expectant smiles.

Eva Mae,
Well your father and I have been friends, many years.
Watch the world around us change, hoped our hopes, feared our fears.
He asked me to watch you, as you grow.
Hold your hand through the highs and lift you up through the lows.

Now Eva Mae,
Don't you judge me too hard.
I try to be a good man to be the best with what I've got.
Eva Mae,
I will teach you what I know.
And watch over you everywhere that you go.

Eva Mae,
I have made many mistakes, in my time.
Built my share of bridges and broken hearts, I've told lies.
I have not always followed my own advice.
I've fallen flat, but Eva darling sometimes that's just life.

Eva Mae,
With the way that I am I might not, much be around.
But I'll stop in from time to time to share, the things I've learnt.
You should keep your friends and family close.
And you should always, always, always, always try to say yes.
And we can not ever one of us be perfect, but Eva, darling we can try our best.

Now Eva Mae,
I won't ever judge you hard,
Just try to be a good girl and make the best with what you got
Now Eva Mae,
I will teach you what I know, and watch over you everywhere that you go
Everywhere you go.
