See the tree, how big it's grown,
friend it hasn' C7
t been too long,
I laughed at her a G7
nd she got mad,
first day that sh G7
e planted it,
Then the first snow came,
and she ran out to brush the snow away,
so it wouldn't die.
Came runnin'in all excited,
slipped and almost hurt herself,
and I laughed till I cried.
She was always young at heart,
kinda dumb and kinda smart,
and I loved her so.
And I surprised her with a puppy,
kept me up all Christmas Eve,
two years ago.
And it would sure embarrass her,
when I came in from workin'late,
'cause I would know.
That she'd been sittin'there and cryin',
Over some sad and silly,
She wrecked the car and she was sad,
and so afraid that I'd be mad,
but what the heck.
Though I pretended hard to be,
guess you could say she saw through me,
and hugged my neck.
I came home unexpectedly,
and caught her cryin'needlessly,
in the middle of the day.
And it was in the early spring,
when flowers bloom and robins sing,
she went away.
day while I was not at home,
she was there an D7
d all alone,
all I have i A7
Honey and A7
I wake up nights,
Now my life's an empty stage,
where Honey lived and Honey played,
and love grew up.
And a small cloud passes overhead,
and cries down on the flower bed,
that Honey loved.
And see the tree how big it's grown,
but friend it hasn't been too long,
it wasn't big.
And I laughed at her and she got mad,
the first day that she planted it,
was just a twig.
