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

Tony Heaton

@David Joy, I'll go back and reread. I'm certain I read he remarried. I will admit if I'm wrong

David Joy

@Tony Heaton Tony, firstly Ronald, bless the guy, never remarried. He does not say he looked for anyone else and could not find anyone. He just I believe was too distraught to even think about looking for anyone else. Also you mention God, Well I am evermore glad I am an atheist every day when I read comments from some stupid God person. There is no God/Gods. All made up stuff to keep people in order back in the day. Yes the 10 commandments are admirable but just common sense really and nothing to get excited about. Another thing not very nice calling the poor guy a loser. Yes he lost the love of his life and was devastated. Sorry but you are some great big ass hole believe me, you got that bit right.

Tony Heaton

I'll be the asshole. First, I'm truly sorry for your loss. However, if you could even think about getting remarried, you did not love Penny. You may fool others, but you will not fool God. You certainly won't fool Penny. You are a loser!

David Joy

I feel for you friend. I cannot imagine the pain.

Jose Galvez

God bless you man

@Ray Wharton Sorry for your loss. I know how it feels as I've lost both my parents & my sister in the last 10yrs, and i always think of them.

I've just released this.

I've been meaning to do this and forgot until your comment.

Ray Wharton

Reminds me of my late wife. Always makes me cry.
