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


CSee the tree, how big it's grown,
|Cmaj7 C7but friend it hasn't been too long,
|Dm7 G7 |Dm7 G7it wasn't big.
|Dm7 G7I laughed at her and she got mad,
|Dm7 G7the first day that she planted it,
|C |Cmaj7 C6 |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,
C |Cmaj7late, late show.
C6 |Dm7 G7 |Dm7And honey, I miss you,
G7 |C |Cmaj7and I'm bein' good.
C6 |Dm7 G7 |Dm7And I'd love to be with you,
G7 |C |Cmaj7 C6if 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,
G7 |C Cmaj7 |Em7 A7if only I could.
|DOne day while I was not at home,
|Dmaj7 D7while she was there and all alone,
|Em7 A7 |Em7 A7the angels came.
|Em7 A7Now all I have is memories,
|Em7 A7of Honey and I wake up nights,
|D |Dmaj7 D6 |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.
