    Lyrics

    (Bobby Russell)

    See the tree how big it's grown
    But friend it hasn't been too long it wasn't big
    And I laughed at him and he got mad
    The first day that he planted it it was just a twig.

    Then the first snow came and he ran out
    To brush the snow away so it wouldn't die
    Came runnin' in all excited, slipped
    And almost hurt himself and I laughed till I cried.

    He was always young at heart
    Kinda dumb and kinda smart and I loved him so
    And I surprised him with a puppy
    Kept me up all Christmas Eve two years ago.

    And it would sure embarrass me
    When he'd come in from working late 'cause he'd always know
    If I'd been sittin' there and cryin'
    Over some sad and silly late, late show.

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

    He wrecked the car and he was sad
    And so afraid that I'd be mad but what the heck
    Though I pretended hard to be
    Guess you could say he saw thru me and hugged my neck.

    He came home unexpectedly
    And caught me crying needlessly in the middle of the day
    And it was in the early spring
    When flowers bloom and robins sing he went away.

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

    One day while I was not at home
    And he was there and all alone the angels came
    Now all I have are memories
    Of honey and I wake up nights and call his 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 him and he got mad
    The first day that he planted it it was just a twig...
