Buck Owens – Made in Japan Lyrics

 

My transistor radio comes from far away

And when it’s night over here, over there it’s-a breaking day

I remember all the good times I had walking in the sand

With a beautiful girl that I met made in Japan

 

The beauty of her face was beyond my wildest dreams

Like cherry blossoms blooming in the mountains in the early spring

As we walked by the river and she softly took hold of my hand

That’s when I fell deep in love with a girl made in Japan

 

In the dark of night we would lay on Tokyo Bay

And the singing of the birds woke us up at the break of day

Her smiling eyes always seemed to try to understand

All the love in my heart for the girl made in Japan

 

My transistor radio comes from far away

And when it’s night over here over there it’s-a breaking day

She cried when she said she’d been promised to another man

That’s when I left my heart with the girl made in Japan

Yes my heart will always be with the girl made in Japan
