Bobby Goldsboro Lyrics

See the tree, how big it's grown
But friend it hasn't been too long
It wasn't big
I laughed at her and she got mad,
The first day that she planted it
Was just a twig
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 late, late show

And honey, I miss you and I'm bein' good
And I'd love to be with you if only I could

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 a day
And it was in the early spring
When flowers bloom and robins sing
She went away

And honey, I miss you and I'm bein' good
And I'd love to be with you if only I could

One day while I was not at home
While she was there and all alone
The angels came
Now all I have is memories of honey
And I wake up nights and call her name
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

IN 1967 MY WIFE WAS KILLED IN A CAR WRECK(I WAS NOT IN THE WRECK). Every time I hear this song  IO think of her usually I will cry if I'm alone. This is the first time in a long time I haven't cried. In all the time I never did get remarried I just couldn't let Penny go. To this day I love that fine beautiful girl

It’s certainly tugs at the heart strings. I could well imagine that I was a bit like Honey. She sounds beautiful inside and out.


This song came on the radio this morning. As soon as I stopped driving, looked it up on YouTube. Found your message. I was 3 in 1967 and I’m sorry for your loss. I feel the same way, been married 30 years and I could never remarry. Hang on to all the great memories. Be safe out there friend.

I send you a big hug

This reminds me off. My fiance who was murdered by the scumbags.

My thoughts with you. I lost my mum in 2005 aged 66 to a terrible brain disease and this was the song on the radio as I was driving back from the hospital. It still kills me to listen to now and when my depression kicks in I just can't help myself, I have to put this (amongst other sad songs) on just to let it all out, even after 16 years.

I lost my honey in 1998. She did plant a tree and it's big and strong in Baytown Texas. This song I love but it does make me cry. I guess it always will.
