The version that Jim Ed Brown sings is the version that was released by Daniel Gerard in South Africa - I remember the third verse as : When a man has a yen to be free, he will sail to the end of the sea, I won't be gone to long but while I travel on, just for one reason wait for me

Did Charlie Gracie (sp??) have a version..."cute Butterfly...well I'm crazy about you..."

Thank you, Joe

Sorry but I think you get it wrong.

The correct one should be

Butterfly by Jim Ed Brown

The lyrics goes like this

Fell in love in the wink of an eye with the girl who was called Butterfly

She said she loved me so she could not let me go but still I had to say goodbye

Butterfly my Butterfly I'll come home to you one day

Butterfly my Butterfly wait for me don't fly away

Never fly in the heat of the sun close your wings when the long day is done

Stay home and wait for me till I get back and then counting the minutes one by one

Butterfly my Butterfly...

When a man longs to be free he will sail to the end of the sea

I won't be gone too long but while I travel on just close your wings and wait for me

Butterfly my Butterfly...

Butterfly my Butterfly...
