    (R. Stewart, K. Savigar)

    On a hot summer's night
    In the year of '75
    Jimmy Doyle took his child bride
    Amanda, for a drive
    She was only seventeen
    He just lived to see her smile
    Their commitment to each other
    Burned like a forest fire

    Otis on the radio singing "Stand By Me"
    As a trooper pulled them over
    And said Jimmy where you been
    Someone matching your description
    Has just robbed the liquor store
    Amanda said "He's been with me"
    But they weren't listening anymore

    Down at Precinct Number Five
    They questioned Jimmy through the night
    The sheriff said "He's gotta stand trial"
    Armed robbery is the charge
    Amanda said "This cannot be"
    Gonna stay right here until you set him free

    And I love him
    Here to eternity
    Unto eternity
    Oh God gave me something
    I must hold on to
    Gonna hold on him
    No matter what you do

    The old courthouse was crowded
    As the judge reviewed the case
    In a year of re-election
    He was desperate to impress
    Innocent or guilty
    He saw an opportunity
    To send Jimmy down for life
    To the Penitentiary

    Disbelief and anger
    As they dragged him away
    In a cell below the courthouse
    They beat him like a slave
    But his use of martial arts
    Struck a blow for liberty
    Felled a guard with a fist of iron
    And killed him instantly

    All the press surrounded Amanda
    Coming down the courthouse steps
    Pleading for her young man's life
    And in a moment seen by millions
    She bowed her head and cried
    Show my man some mercy
    He's the father of my child

    I love him
    Here to eternity
    Unto eternity
    Oh God gave me something
    I must hold on to
    Gonna hold on him
    No matter what you do
    I love him
    Here to eternity

    Jimmy Doyle appeared again
    In a second public trail
    For the murder of a prison guard
    They sentenced him to die
    But Amanda with her long red hair
    Made one last plea
    As the court fell into silence
    She cried out desperately

    This man of mine is innocent
    As one day I shall prove
    It's an open case of self defense
    All this circumstantial evidence
    You place before your court
    Has robbed me of my husband
    Forget I will not

    I love him
    Here to eternity
    Unto eternity
    Oh goodbye my Jimmy
    'Til we meet again
    In a better world than this
    I swear I'll clear your name
    'Cos I love you
    Here to eternity
