I see trees that are green, red roses too
I watch them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more, than I'll ever know
And I think to myself, ohh what a wonderful world

The colours of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of the people passing by
I see friends shaking hands, saying, "how do you do?"
But they're really saying, "I love you"

I see trees that are green and red roses too
I watch them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself, oh what a wonderful world

And I think to myself, oh what a wonderful world

I think to myself, ooh what a wonderful world

From what I understand, this is the last recording she ever made. It was recorded at a benefit concert in her honor shortly before she died of carcinoma. She came out with a walker and laid this down. Pretty damn good I think.
That did nothing for me I\'m afraid.

I believe this was the last song she ever performed in public - at the Bayou in Georgetown.

Sounds more than a bit like Bonnie Raitt in her quiet ballads, but younger and having been through less.
Eva Cassidy had one of the most beautiful voices ever. One of the most chilling and moving songs on her album is \"Autum Leaves.\" Also, her version of \"Natural Woman\" is very powerful. Too bad she left us so soon. Thanks Bill. Hopefully you\'ll play some other songs from Eva soon.
If this is not her best, wow, I can't wait to hear more. Her vocals are crisp and her intonation is almost perfect.
Eva Cassidy\'s voice is so wonderful - but she has far better songs then this one. Don\'t discount her based on this remake - she is a gem.
