This is what the fortune teller said

I’d find you walking in the rain across a field of green

Golden hair with just a trace of red

The bluest eyes the I had ever seen

She said that your smile would bring the sunshine to the day

Wash all my loneliness away

I couldn’t shake the vision she left in my head

I wanted what the fortune teller said

So I left my home to search the world

Looking for your golden hair in every rain-drenched field

Certain I would find my blue-eyed girl

The one the fortune teller made so real

Looking for a smile to bring the sunshine to the day

Wash all my loneliness away

But the years went by til all my hopes had fled

Of finding what the fortune teller said

Then today while walking through the town

I saw you sitting on a bench, blue sky up above

Though your hair was black and eyes were brown

You were all that I’d been dreaming of

Knew it when you smiled and brought the sunshine to my day

Washed all my loneliness away

You are where my life-long search at last has led

And everything the fortune teller said
