    Lyrics

    (Bud Reneau - Doyle Marsh)

    When I noticed her the first time
    I was outside running barefoot in the rain
    She lived in the house next door
    Her nose was pressed against the window pane.

    When I looked at her she smiled
    And showed a place where two teeth used to be
    And I heard her ask her mom
    If she could come outside and play with me.

    Soon the days of sand and shovels
    Gave way to the mysteries of life
    Then I noticed she was changing
    And I looked at her through different eyes.

    We became as one and knew a love
    Without beginning or an end
    And everyday I lived with her
    Was like a new day dawning once again.

    And I've loved her since
    Every doll was Shirley Temple
    Soda pop was still a nickel
    Jam was on her fingertips
    Milk was circled on her lips.

    After many years our love grew silent
    And at night I heard her cry
    And when she left me in the fall
    I knew that this would be our last goodbye.

    I was man enough to give her
    Everything she needed for a while
    But in searching for a pefect love
    I found that I could not give her a child.

    Now she lives a quiet life
    And is a mother of a little girl
    And everytime I pass her house
    My thoughts go back into another world.

    'Cause I see her little girl
    Her nose is pressed against the window pane
    And she thinks I'm a lonely man
    Who wants to come inside out of the rain.

    And I've loved her since
    Every doll was Shirley Temple
    Soda pop was still a nickel
    Jam was on her fingertips
    Milk was circled on her lips...
