|      |: Measure with Chord(s) of 4-counts.

INTRO: |Dm7    |G7    |C    |Cmaj7  C6  |

VERSE 1:

C
See the tree, how big it's grown,
   |Cmaj7            C7
but friend it hasn't been too long,
  |Dm7        G7  |Dm7  G7
it wasn't big.
 |Dm7                G7
I laughed at her and she got mad,
   |Dm7                G7
the first day that she planted it,
   |C           |Cmaj7  C6  |
was just a twig.

VERSE 2:

C
Then the first snow came,
           |Cmaj7            C7
and she ran out to brush the snow away,
     |Dm7          G7  |Dm7  G7
so it wouldn't die.
    |Dm7        G7         | 
Came runnin' in all excited,
Dm7                G7
slipped and almost hurt herself,
"    |C                   |Cmaj7  C6  |
and I laughed till I cried.

VERSE 3:

C                            |
She was always young at heart,
Cmaj7          C7
kinda dumb and kinda smart,
     |Dm7          G7  |Dm7  G7
and I loved her so.
   |Dm7             G7          |
And I surprised her with a puppy,
Dm7            G7
kept me up all Christmas Eve,
   |C         |Cmaj7  C6
two years ago.

VERSE 4:

   |C
And it would sure embarrass her,
    |Cmaj7          C7
when I came in from workin' late,
        |Dm7        G7  |Dm7  G7
'cause I would know.
    |Dm7                G7              |
That she'd been sittin' there and cryin',
Dm7          G7           |
   Over some sad and silly,
C               |Cmaj7
late, late show.

CHORUS:

    C6      |Dm7      G7  |Dm7
And honey, I miss you,
    G7       |C    |Cmaj7
and I'm bein' good.
        C6        |Dm7      G7  |Dm7
And I'd love to be with you,
   G7    |C     |Cmaj7  C6
if only I could.

VERSE 5:

   |C
She wrecked the car and she was sad,
   |Cmaj7          C7
and so afraid that I'd be mad,
   |Dm7           G7  |Dm7  G7
but what the heck.
      |Dm7         G7
Though I pretended hard to be,
     |Dm7               G7
guess you could say she saw through me,
   |C             |Cmaj7  C6  |
and hugged my neck.

VERSE 6:

C
I came home unexpectedly,
   |Cmaj7             C7
and caught her cryin' needlessly,
      |Dm7               G7  |Dm7  G7
in the middle of the day.
   |Dm7           G7
And it was in the early spring,
    |Dm7               G7
when flowers bloom and robins sing,
   |C         |Cmaj7
she went away.

CHORUS:

    C6      |Dm7      G7  |Dm7
And honey, I miss you,
    G7       |C    |Cmaj7
and I'm bein' good.
        C6        |Dm7      G7  |Dm7
And I'd love to be with you,
   G7    |C    Cmaj7  |Em7  A7
if only I could.

VERSE 7:

   |D
One day while I was not at home,
     |Dmaj7             D7
while she was there and all alone,
   |Em7         A7  |Em7  A7
the angels came.
   |Em7           A7
Now all I have is memories,
  |Em7         A7
of Honey and I wake up nights,
   |D             |Dmaj7  D6  |
and call her name.

VERSE 8:

D
Now my life's an empty stage,
     |Dmaj7           D7
where Honey lived and Honey played,
   |Em7          A7  |Em7  A7
and love grew up.
     |Em7                A7
And a small cloud passes overhead,
   |Em7               A7
and cries down on the flower bed,
    |D           |Dmaj7  D6
that Honey loved.

VERSE 9:

   |D
And see the tree how big it's grown,
   |Dmaj7            D7
but friend it hasn't been too long,
  |Em7        A7  |Em7  A7
it wasn't big.

(in Fade Out:)

     |Em7                A7
And I laughed at her and she got mad,
   |Em7                A7
the first day that she planted it,
   |D           |Dmaj7  D6  |
was just a twig.
