​My Mother's Eyes

This song is by Etta Jones and appears on the album My Mother's Eyes (1978) and on the compilation album Timeless Etta Jones (2010).

One bright and guiding light
That taught me wrong from right
I found in my mother's eyes

Those baby tales she told
Of streets are paved with gold
I found, I found, I found in my mother's eyes

Just like a wandering sparrow
One lonely soul
I walk the straight and narrow
Just to reach my goal

God's gift sent from above
A real, real, real unselfish love
I found, I found in my mother's eyes

Just like a wandering sparrow
One lonely soul
I walk the straight and narrow
Just to reach my goal

Oh, God's gift sent from above
Just a real, a real, a real unselfish love
Oh, I found, I found in my mother's eyes
I found, I found in my mother's, in my mother's eyes
