DOLLY PARTON - Jeannie's Afraid Of The Dark Lyrics

Her two little feet would come running intoOur bedroom almost every nightHer soft little face would be wet from her tearsAnd her little heart pounding with frightShe'd hold out her arms, then she'd climb in beside usIn her small voice, we'd hear her remarkMommie and daddy, can I sleep here with you'cause jeannie's afraid of the darkOne day in the summer, we took some flowersTo place on some old family gravesJeannie said, mommy, ain't it dark in the groundOh, daddy, I'd be so afraidThen she looked up at her daddy and meAnd said somethin' that broke both our heartsShe said, when I die, please don't bury me'cause jeannie's afraid of the darkJeannie was always afraid of the darkAnd we never could understand why'cause we looked after jeannie with the very best of careBecause jeannie was our only childPerhaps it was death that she was so afraid of'cause it took her one dark stormy nightI think we always knew that we'd never see jeannie grown'cause it seemed she was destined to dieBut on jeannie's grave, we placed an eternal flameThat glows and never loses it's sparkAnd on the darkest night, there's always a light'cause jeannie's afraid of the darkOur jeannie's afraid of the dark
