(Bobby 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.

And then the first snow came
And she ran out to brush the snow away so it wouldn't die
Came running 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 working late 'cause I would know
That she'd been a crying
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
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
Caught her crying needlessly in the middle of the day
Then 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
And I'd love to be with you if only I could.

Yes, one day while I was not at home
When 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.

And now my life's an empty stage
Where honey lived and honey played and love grew up
A small cloud passes overhead
And cries down on the flower bed that honey loved.

Yes, 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.

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