Sound Of An Angel's Wings Lyrics

by Conway Twitty

Jenny was the girl that I once called my own
Then came the day my Jenny left me all alone
She died 'neath the wheels of a midnight train
Trying to find the high school ring
And that's when I first heard the sound of an angel's wings

Oh, how my poor heart cried the day they took her away
And then something deep inside me seemed to say
"Goodbye my love, remember me, I'll wait for you in eternity"
And again I heard the sound of an angel's wings

I slowly walked back to my home down by the sea
And there on the shelf was a picture of my Jenny and me
And I fell to my knees as the teardrops streamed
And I cried, "Oh Lord, let it all be a dream"
But again I heard the sound of an angel's wings

I ran down to the sea so deep and wide
I just had to be by my darling Jenny's side
And I cried, "Oh Jenny, please wait for me"
Then jumped into the angry sea
And again I heard the sound of an angel's wings

And the last thing I heard was the sound of my angel's wings
