|      |: Measure of 4-counts.

INTRO: |Gm7    |F7    |F    |Fmaj7  F6  |


See the tree, how big it's grown,
   |Fmaj7            F7
but friend it hasn't been too long,
  |Gm7        F7  |Gm7  F7
it wasn't big.
 |Gm7                F7
I laughed at her and she got mad,
   |Gm7                F7
the first day that she planted it,
   |F           |Fmaj7  F6  |
was just a twig.

VERSE 2: (Chords Like 1)

Then 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,
and I laughed till I cried.

VERSE 3: (Chords Like 1)

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.

VERSE 4: (Chords Like 1)

And it would sure embarrass her,
when I came in from workin' late,
'cause I would know.
That she'd been sittin' there and cryin',
Over some sad and silly,
F               |Fmaj7
late, late show.


    F6      |Gm7      F7  |Gm7
And honey, I miss you,
    F7       |F    |Fmaj7
and I'm bein' good.
        F6        |Gm7      F7  |Gm7
And I'd love to be with you,
   F7    |F     |Fmaj7  F6
if only I could.

VERSE 5: (Chords Like 1)

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.

VERSE 6: (Chords Like 1)

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

CHORUS: (Chords Like above)

And honey, I miss you,
and I'm bein' good.
And I'd love to be with you,
   F7    |F    Fmaj7  |Am7  G7
if only I could.


One day while I was not at home,
     |Gmaj7             G7
while she was there and all alone,
   |Am7         G7  |Am7  G7
the angels came.
   |Am7           G7
Now all I have is memories,
  |Am7         G7
of Honey and I wake up nights,
   |G             |Gmaj7  G6  |
and call her name.

VERSE 8: (Chords Like 7)

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.

VERSE 9: (Chords Like 7)

And see the tree how big it's grown,
but friend it hasn't been too long,
it wasn't big.

(in Fade Out:)

And I laughed at her and she got mad,
the first day that she planted it,
was just a twig.
