Bobby Goldsboro - Honey
(B. Russell)

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
The 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
I laughed till cried

She was always young at heart
Kind a dumb and kind a smart
And I loved her so
I surprised her with a puppy
Kept me up all christmas eve
Two years ago

And it would sure embarrass her
When I came home from working 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 being 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 found her crying needlessly
In the middle of the 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 being good

One day while I wasn't 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
A small cloud passes over head
And cries down in the flower bed
That Honey loved

See the tree how big it's grown
